Project Runway’s Heidi Klum and Chris March get their own reality shows

A former Project Runway cast member, Chris March, and the show’s host, Heidi Klum, are both getting their own reality shows.

Heidi will host a new series on Lifetime, the new home of the fashion competition, that’s basically Kids Say the Darndest Things. Its working title is Seriously Funny Kids, and it “will feature Klum interacting with children and bringing out the hilarious and often insightful things they say,” according to the network, which will debut 20 half-hour episodes next year. I hope Heidi gets to auf them if they’re not funny enough.

Meanwhile, Bravo is giving season four contestant Chris March his own docudrama. It’s in development on The Chris March Project, which is a working title and also very dull. The show “will follow Chris and his eccentric crew of fashion misfits as they create a one-of-a-kind design for his loyal clientele, which includes everyone from Madonna to Meryl Streep,” according to Bravo, which says drama comes as “Chris pushes the boundaries of fashion and challenges his clients’ comfort zones.”

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
