People, get ready to strike a pose and don your ‘Make It Work’ necklace in the name of a swift settlement. There’s a cat fight going on over the rights to ‘Project Runway’ that would make even Janet Dickinson cower. According to Reuters, the Lifetime cable network -- which was scheduled to pick up the sixth season of the show -- has now counter-sued Bravo, NBC Universal and the Weinstein Co. over rights to ‘PR.’
You may recall that the Weinstein Co. tried to shuffle the show from Bravo (owned by NBC-Uni) over to Lifetime, and things got crazy bad. The worst part is that ‘Project Runway’ has already shot most of its sixth season here in Los Angeles, and, well, we’re dying to see contestants interpret L.A. style. And could Christian Audigier please be a judge for the tattooed-denim-and-trucker-cap competition?
Do you think ‘Project Runway’ would be better or worse on Lifetime? Weigh in, people.
