Project Greenlight 3 debuts tonight.
Project Greenlight 3 kicks off tonight on Bravo, its new network, at 9 p.m. ET. Those without Bravo can also watch; AOL will stream the show on the web and on AOL proper. In addition to switching networks, the show is shifting its focus to horror, bringing Wes Craven on-board to produce–and to try to actually create a film that someone other than the projectionist will watch in a theatre. The Hollywood Reporter says that “while some will see the latest incarnation of ‘Project Greenlight’ as something of a sellout, it’s really just an inevitable nod to honest marketplace considerations. Sooner or later, even novice filmmakers need to understand that their bosses aren’t in the red-ink business. They might as well learn from the start.” And The New York Times says “again, the show is producing better television than cinema.”

The Quest ends its journey stronger than it began
