Models of the Runway spin-off will follow Project Runway’s models, air on Lifetime

The Project Runway spin-off that the Weinstein Company sold to Lifetime (along with the show’s sixth season) will follow the models who wear the designers clothes. Models of the Runway will be “a series looking at ‘Project Runway’ from the models’ eyes,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That new show will debut in November along with Project Runway 6. Harvey Weinstein “appeared confident that the November timeline wouldn’t change with the lawsuit. He said that NBC Uni knew that it wasn’t going to stay on Bravo, no matter what happened,” according to the paper.

As to Nina Garcia’s role on future seasons of the show, now that she’s out as fashion director at Elle, Weinstein said they’re working on keeping her, because “Nina wants to stay with us and we want her to be.” The paper says that “Gunn, Heidi Klum and Michael Kors are on board to continue with the new seasons.”
