The sixth season of Bravo’s celebrated and gay fav “Project Runway” may never see the small screen.
At least that’s the concern of fashion guru Tim Gunn, who tells the Washington Blade that a nasty court fight over the show may keep the newest season from its fans.
“We have this horrible, nasty court case. We have an angry Bravo/NBC. We have an angry Lifetime. We have, I’m sure, an angry Weinstein Company,” Gunn said. “We have Heidi and I despondent about the whole thing. We worry that season six will never be seen by anyone,” Gunn said.
Gunn said he hopes that the conflict is resolved because, “season six is phenomenal.”
The show is mired in legal battles over its apparent jump from Bravo to Lifetime, which was to happen after the sixth season aired. Earlier this year, the Weinstein Company sold the rights to the show to LIfetime, which prompted a lawsuit from NBC Universal, which owns Bravo. Lifetime has since filed a countersuit.
With much of the new season already filmed, let’s hope the Hollywood players will make it work.
