The Project Runway Lawsuit Has Been Settled!

Almost a year after NBC sued the Weinstein Company for selling Project Runway to Lifetime without giving the network the right of first refusal, the lawsuit has been settled. According to a statement released today by NBC Universal, the Weinstein Company will pay NBC for the right to move the series to Lifetime. Harvey Weinstein says in the statement, "I want to personally congratulate Jeff Zucker and NBCU on their success in the litigation and thank Jeff for resolving this in a professional manner. We look forward to working together on our ongoing projects.” So although Weinstein and Zucker were having a diva feud throughout the proceedings — Weinstein accusing Zucker of trying to sabotage the series and Zucker accusing Weinstein of being just plain shady — they're besties again! (Yay?) And the sixth season of Project Runway is saved! Er, the sixth season of Project Runway that was shot in L.A. can finally air on Lifetime! Wow, now that we've typed it out, it just sounds so depressing.
