Project Runway Litigation Settled

For the past year, the Weinstein Company and NBC Universal have been battling over the rights to air the fashion reality show Project Runway, delaying the sixth season which has been filmed and is awaiting airing. Weinstein Company, which owns the show, sold it to Lifetime network, and NBC Universal sued and obtained an injunction in New York State Supreme Court. The New York Times writes that

The Weinstein Company acknowledged that it had improperly sold the show to the Lifetime Channel, without giving NBC Universal a right to match the offer to keep it on its own Bravo cable network.

The New York Times and Wall Street Journal have details of the settlement. Lifetime plans to air the sixth season of Project Runway this summer.
