Bravo Heads Back to the 'Runway'

heidiklum_projectrunway_240_002.jpg

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - With an audience of just over 2 million viewers, the Wednesday, Feb. 23 first season finale of "Project Runway" stands as Bravo's most watched program of the year. It's little wonder, then, that the cable network is eager to go back down the catwalk with the Heidi Klum-hosted series.

Bravo and Miramax Television are set to begin production on a second season of "Project Runway," an impressive fact given that the show premiered back in December to only 354,000 viewers. Klum will return as host and executive producer on the series, which gives aspiring designers the chance to break into the world of high fashion.

"'Project Runway' is in the cross hairs of Bravo's programming mandate--to give viewers a unique, behind the scenes perspective into the creative process of an integral part of pop culture," says Bravo President Lauren Zalaznick. "Miramax is the absolute best television partner on this series that we could hope to have for this second season, and many more to come."

In addition to Klum and her managers Desiree Gruber and Jane Cha, "Project Runway" is executive produced by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz of Magical Elves, with Jennifer Berman and Barbara Schneeweiss overseeing things for Miramax. "It's been great discovering new talent and giving viewers the chance to have an inside look into the exciting world of fashion," says Miramax Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein. "We're looking forward to another successful season of 'Project Runway' with Bravo and Heidi Klum."

Excellent! Any date info?

I thought the show was great and spent some time at the web site, too, rating the fashions the next day. Reading Tim's take was interesting too. His opinions were usually right on the money.

I would like the site better if you could look at the fashions 3-dimensionally and if it had more face makeup looks (or whatever) in the fashion 101 portion of the site. Otherwise, the recaps are awesome if you miss the show for some reason. I don't know how you could, since Bravo plays it 4 to 5 times a week. Even I don't have a problem with that! :wink:

Back on the 'Runway'

by Bruce Fretts

Daniel Franco

As Heidi Klum says on 'Project Runway,' "Either you're in or you're out." But it's not that simple in the case of Daniel Franco. The aspiring fashion designer with the 'Flock of Seagulls' haircut was the first contestant kicked off the Bravo reality show last year. But when the Emmy-nominated sleeper returns for a second season on December 7, Franco will be back in style, competing again for the chance to create his own clothing line.

"The judges had no idea I was going to be there," Franco says of his second audition. "I walked in the room like everybody else. I stood in line and came in with my shades and my samples." After 'Runway' guru Tim Gunn invited Franco back on the show, "it felt like a bit of a redemption," he says. "I thought, 'Yeah!' Then I said, 'Aw, sh_ _, not again!"

Klum and Hurley Sued Over 'Runway' Rights

Klum_200x225.jpghurley200x225.jpg

Heidi Klum and Elizabeth Hurley are part of a law suit involving 'Project Runway'

Heidi Klum, Elizabeth Hurley and Greenlight Productions are being sued by a man claiming to have created the TV reality show, 'Project Runway.' Heidi Klum will return as hostess of the second season of 'Project Runway,' which premieres on Tuesday, December 6. Elizabeth Hurley will host the UK's version of the show, 'Project Catwalk.'

Joel Lamontagne filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming he wrote a script for a reality show called 'America's Fashion Designer Search,' which he says was turned into 'Project Runway.' The Emmy-nominated series first aired on Bravo in 2004. Lamontagne registered his script with the Writer's Guild of America in January 2003.

'Project Runway' focuses on fashion designers hoping to break into the business. Other defendants include Walt Disney Pictures, Miramax Films and Bravo Company. Lamontagne is also suing 'Project Runway' sponsors, including The Gap, Banana Republic and L'Oreal.

I only watched a few eppy's last season but, it seems to me that they have a whole lot better group this year. There are at least 6 or 7 or the remaining 13 that are spectacular imo.

Santos, the girl that won the second comp., daniel? (the guy the let back), the guy that is European looking, clean-cut with short beard and shaved/dark hair, also the other European, clean-cut, blonde haired guy and then the chick that has a scientific approach all intrigue me so far... but, I feel like I leaving 1 or 2 out so, give me a week or two to remember their names and I 'll try and narrow down to my top 5 ... which is going to be hard cause they're all so good this year.
