‘Project Runway’ may escape the woes of gymnast-eating-disorder network
A judge ruled on Friday that Lifetime cannot air, market, or promote Project Runway because NBC Universal should have had a right to match the terms of the deal made with the Weinstein Co., reports New York Magazine. The story adds that The Weinstein Co. plans to appeal, though the networks could settle out of court. If Bravo reclaims its hit - by hit, I mean pre-season-five when there was hype and talent - it better have a great PR campaign to shine against The Rachel Zoe Project. Maybe a pre-season-preview, design-for-Tim Gunn-eco-friendly-Manhattan-at-dusk-inspired challenge aired on YouTube only?
