Project Runway fans, listen up! The legal battle the show has been involved in for the past year is finally over. NBC Universal announced today that the dispute between them, the Weinstein Company, and Lifetime has been resolved.
The statement reads: "NBC Universal, The Weinstein Co. and Lifetime have resolved their disputes. The Weinstein Co. will pay NBCU for the right to move Project Runway to Lifetime. All of the parties are pleased with the outcome."
The show has already been shot, and now will finally air this summer on Lifetime. The previous five seasons had aired on Bravo previously.
Lifetime President and CEO Andrea Wong said in a statement, "I couldn't be more excited that Lifetime will bring its viewers an amazing, all-new season of Project Runway this summer. All of us at Lifetime are thrilled to move forward with Heidi, Tim, Nina, Michael, The Weinstein Company and the entire Project Runway team."
