Various web reports are being posted that the days for Project Runway and Bravo! are numbered. Apparently, the company that produces and distributes the program has negotiated a deal with Lifetime to move the program after season 5 to Lifetime. That means that the next season will be Bravo’s last stand.
Could be interesting, as the “talent” for the series is contracted year to year — so it could mean that starting in season 6, we could see a whole new bumper crop in a revised Runway. We saw what those types of production changes did for the once unstoppable afternoon mega-hit Trading Spaces…it knocked the show so far off the radar that it’s nearly in the next galaxy.
Words of advice to Lifetime and Co.: Make it work.
