According to Adweek, it’s getting really ugly between Jeff Zucker, president and CEO of NBC Universal, and Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Co. (TWC), over Project Runway. The dramaz continues to outshine the show. They both offered conflicting testimony Thursday at a hearing in New York State Supreme Court in their dispute over the hit show.
In April, NBC filed suit against TWC (producers of Project Runway), for breach of contract for moving the series to Lifetime for it’s Sixth season to begin in October without giving NBC — Bravo’s parent — the chance to match the offer.
Weinstein testified that he wanted to cut ties with Bravo after season three, because the network "ruined the relationship," by copying the Runway format with shows like Top Chef and Shear Genius, and refusing to pay increased license fees, forcing Weinstein to produce Runway at a $230,000 per episode deficit.
