Project Jay may be expanded to 12 episodes

Bravo previously announced a one-hour special titled Project Jay that would catch us up with Jay McCarroll, the winner of Project Runway.

But while Bravo’s web site still says the show will be a “one-hour documentary,” a report this morning suggests that it may turn into a full series. Page Six reports that “Jay McCarroll is said to be furious with his patron saint, Heidi Klum, because she nixed the dress he made for her to wear to the Emmys in favor of a wispy, floral, off-the-shoulder Christian Dior frock.”

But in that item, Page Six offhandedly notes that Jay “is now filming 12 episodes of ‘Project Jay’–a follow-up show to ‘Project Runway.'” There are no other details about his forthcoming series, and Jay’s web site hasn’t been updated since the show was airing early this year.

By the way, Page Six headlines its item “Designer Glum over Klum.” Perhaps visual rhymes are the new in-thing, or maybe they’re just unaware that “Klum” rhymes with “zoom,” not “plum.”
