'Project Runway' Lands At Lifetime After Dispute

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) - After months in limbo, "Project Runway" has a new home at Lifetime. The design-competition series that originally aired on the Bravo network had been mired in a legal struggle involving NBC Universal, which owns Bravo, the Weinstein Co. and the Lifetime channel.

The dispute began last April after NBC Universal sued Weinstein after the production company made a reported $150 million deal with Lifetime for the series that features supermodel Heidi Klum as host.

That lawsuit has been settled. In a statement Wednesday, NBC Universal said Weinstein will pay the media company "for the right to move 'Project Runway' to Lifetime. All parties are pleased with the outcome.'"
