Project Runway Update. The (Runway) Show Must Go On!

January 27, 2009 • Fashion Shows

Fashion Week is less than a month away, but  the current season of "Project Runway" is a no-show. Meaning, it may never make it to TV. Yet, producers plan to film the big, New York Fashion Week finale anyway.

Taping of the new season (this season in LA)  was completed last fall.

According to the NY Post, the show is still in a legal quagmire, tied up in a knot of bitter lawsuits between NBC-owned Bravo, its producers at The Weinstein Company and Lifetime, which bought the rights to the show last year when its deal with Bravo expired.

Yet, the show has booked three hours in the main tent in Bryant Park on the last day of Fashion Week, February 20, to film the season'sProject_runway
traditional finale episode.

Since we will not know any of the names, faces or personalities, the 2009 edition is expected to keep the creators of each fashion piece on the runway a secret, to preserve some surprise when, if ever, the show airs.

"It's an incredible season," Tim Gunn told New York magazine. "It really is, and I just want people to see it. And I want the designers on the show to get the exposure."

Yeah? Well we want to see it too! Good luck with that…no trial date has been set.
