NBC Universal has released a statement declaring an end to the bloody Project Runway Wars. The statement, sent by NBC, claims Harvey Weinstein has congratulated Jeff Zucker. So, it could be an April Fools' prank:
NBC Universal, The Weinstein Company and Lifetime have resolved their disputes. The Weinstein Company will pay NBCU for the right to move Project Runway to Lifetime. All of the parties are pleased with the outcome. Harvey Weinstein added, "I want to personally congratulate Jeff Zucker and NBCU on their success in the litigation and thank Jeff for resolving this in a professional manner. We look forward to working together on our ongoing projects."
So this means that the in-question sixth season will actually see the light of day on ladynet Lifetime, though no premiere date has been announced. But still ladies and their gays can breathe some sigh of relief, even if the show had been flailing in recent seasons.
Just to prove that this probably isn't some weird inside-industry April Fools' Day joke (or to trick us more!), Bravo (where the show used to air before the Weinsteins cruelly yanked it away), released info this morning about their new fashion design competition series, The Fashion Show. It's basically the same show, except Isaac Mizrahi and Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland are hosting, instead of Heidi and Tim.
