Production wraps on Project Runway 6, which used fake Mood, has less Kors and Garcia

NBC Universal is still fighting in court over the future of Bravo’s marquee series–on Friday, Lifetime asked for the case to be moved to federal court–but despite that, Project Runway 6 has just completed production in Los Angeles.

Whether or not the lawsuit means the show’s debut is delayed until next summer, there’s troubling news about the actual production, which is now in the producing hands of Real World producers Bunim-Murray.

Besides its move to L.A., judges Nina Garcia and Michael Kors “only make a handful of appearances, and that Garcia and Kors appear in even fewer episodes together,” according to Women’s Wear Daily, which cites anonymous “sources close to the production.”

In addition, WWD says that because “the Los Angeles Mood Fabrics was an hour away from the shoot sites,” “the crew filmed some of the scenes at a fake ‘Mood’ storefront at a different shop.” Both Lifetime and The Weinstein Company, which produces the show, didn’t comment about either claim.

Maybe Tim Gunn’s nervousness was justifiable after all, even if Lifetime’s president said there was nothing to worry about.
