Lifetime to premiere eighth edition of 'Project Runway' on July 29
By Christopher Rocchio, 06/29/2010
Lifetime has announced that Project Runway's eighth season will premiere Thursday, July 29 at 9PM ET/PT and consist of 90-minute episodes.
"We did get always a few complaints from people that they wanted to see a little bit more, which we were obviously very excited about," Project Runway host Heidi Klum told The Associated Press in a Tuesday report.
Bravo's NBC Universal parent company subsequently sued Lifetime and The Weinstein Company, causing the broadcast of Project Runway's first Lifetime edition to be delayed until August 2009.
A Lifetime spokeswoman had no comment on how Project Runway's new 90-minute format will impact Models of the Runway, the 30-minute companion show that had debuted with Project Runway's sixth season and aired immediately after its broadcasts.
