In fashion, one day you are in and the next day you are out. Seems like a handy cliche for the producers of “Project Runway.”
They wanted to bolt from NBC’s Bravo after season five concludes in a few weeks and take the show to Lifetime, eliciting groans from gay fans concerned over the fate of the popular show.
On Friday, a New York judge ruled that the show stays put—for now.
A preliminary injunction was ordered by New York Supreme Court Justice Richard B. Lowe in a lawsuit filed by NBC Universal against the Weinstein Co., which produces the hit reality series hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum.
NBC Universal had aired the series on its Bravo channel. It sued Weinstein after the production company made a reported $150 million deal with Lifetime for the show.
The temporary injunction bars Weinstein from taking “Project Runway” or any spinoff to Lifetime and contended that evidence showed that Weinstein violated NBC’s “right of first refusal” for the show.
Weinstein Co. says it will appeal, while NBC applauds the decision.
In the meantime, the show continues on Wednesday at 9 p.m. with episode 12 as it nears completion of its fifth season.
