‘Project Runway’ Lawsuit to Drag Into Early Spring

By

A lawyer involved in the Project Runway lawsuits filed over the show's move to Lifetime says decisions about the show's fate probably won't be made until the early spring. That could make shooting the finale at February Fashion Week impossible. Insiders also say negotiations for an out-of-court settlement are not taking place, indicating parties involved in the suit (NBC, the Weinstein Co., and Lifetime) must truly hate each other. Meanwhile Bravo is racing to finish its next fashion reality competition show, now tentatively titled The Fashion Show, for which viewers instead of judges will pick the winners. [NYT]
