Project Runway Goes Home
— Andy Cohen (@Andy) May 14, 2018
The fashion design competition series — which debuted on Bravo in 2004 before heading to Lifetime in 2009 — is headed back to its original network for Season 17. The announcement was made at the NBCUniversal Upfront presentation Monday.
“We are beyond excited to reboot Project Runway at the network where it all began. Leaning into the creative process in an entertaining way has always been part of Bravo’s DNA, and Project Runway perfectly captures that,” said President of Lifestyle Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Frances Berwick.
“This franchise will be an important cornerstone to complement Bravo’s original premium scripted and unscripted slate, and we expect it to drive the same level of fandom and passion as we experienced last time it was on Bravo.”
