"Project Runway": The News Just Keeps Getting Worse
First came word that “Project Runway” was leaving my beloved Bravo and going to Lifetime.
Then, we learned that “Elle” had fired Fashion Director and “Runway” judge Nina Garcia, leaving her future as a judge in doubt.
Then, last week, EW.com reported that “Runway” would be splitting its sixth season between New York and Los Angeles.
Now, this week, we learn that “Runway” will be making its move to Lifetime without its executive producers/co-creators, Magical Elves. According to EW.com, Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, the duo responsible for the show, have signed an exclusive first-look deal with NBC Universal to develop shows exclusively for the company’s channels.
Moving to another city? Going without the pair that made it a success? I can’t imagine either of these things bode well for “Runway.”
However, to NBC, I say touché.
I must say this also makes me think that maybe the people at Magical Elves were not too crazy about the move.
