It’s time to make it work, on Bravo again that is.
Project Runway is returning home to Bravo, its original network. The switch comes after almost a decade that the reality TV competition made Lifetime its home.
The news was confirmed by Andy Cohen on Monday during the 2018-19 NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Upfront presentation.
“Project Runway is coming back where it all started,” he said on stage. “It’s coming home on Bravo.”
“We are beyond excited to reboot Project Runway at the network where it all began,” Frances Berwick, President of Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said in a statement. “Leaning into the creative process in an entertaining way has always been part of Bravo’s DNA, and Project Runway perfectly captures that. This franchise will be an important cornerstone to complement Bravo’s original premium scripted and unscripted slate, and we expect it to drive the same level of fan-dom and passion as we experienced last time it was on Bravo.”
The show made its debut in 2004 and has since been looking for the brightest most promising fashion designers. It aired on Bravo for five years but due to a license fee dispute, it homes itself a new home.
The show is hosted by Heidi Klum and features Tim Gunn as the mentor. The panel of judges is helmed by Klum as well as Nina Garcia and Zac Posen.
Auf Wiedersehen Lifetime, hello Bravo!
