So, I was really trying to be optimistic about this one, but it doesn’t seem like there’s much place for optimism in this situation. Yes, this is the third time another move on the Project Runway lawsuits has come into play. Just to make sure everyone’s up to date-First, NBC sued Weinstein Co. because they sold the show to Lifetime, then, Lifetime moved the issue to federal court, and now, just for the hell of it, Weinstein Co. is suing Bravo. It makes me dizzy just thinking about it! Weinstein Co. claims that Bravo intentionally cut-back advertising for Project Runway’s season 5 because the were resentful that the show moved to Lifetime. It was revealed what Weinstein said about Bravo’s harsh actions:
“[they were] changing the show’s airtime; running a small number of ads; creating ‘mundane and unappealing’ ads; providing little information for the press about the season premiere; and revealing spoilers about future episodes.”
Let’s just get it all over with! We need season 6!
