Report: Lifetime developing two new 'Project Runway' spinoff series
By Christopher Rocchio, 05/28/2010
Project Runway's programming family is reportedly about to get a little larger.
Lifetime is developing two new Project Runway spinoffs -- one featuring former finalists Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice and another starring host Heidi Klum and her husband Seal, Daily Varietyreported Thursday.
The new reality series starring Scarlett, who finished fourth during Project Runway's first season, and Rice, who finished third on the show's second season, will follow the design duo as they travel across America to help women in need of a fashion makeover, Variety reported.
Since their Project Runway stints, Scarlett has worked as a fashion correspondent for various networks while Rice has appeared as a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race.
The currently-untitled series was born out of Lifetime Networks and The Weinstein Company's five-year, 10-season deal to bring Project Runway to Lifetime from Bravo in April 2008, according to Variety, which added it will be executive produced by former Project Runway producer Rich Bye.
Tentatively-titled Love's Divine, the new reality series starring Klum and Seal will follow the couple as they travel to the country to help couples in need of coaching, Variety reported.
The series does reportedly not yet have a production company attached to it.
