The Weinstein Company co-chairman and ProjectRunway producer Harvey Weinstein revealed Gunn was not paid for his role in the show's first season during New York State Supreme Court testimony earlier this month, the New York Daily Newsreported Wednesday.
While Gunn was compensated for the show's second season it's not as if he broke the bank, as he received only $2,500 per episode, the Daily News reported citing testimony. Project Runway's second season consisted of 14 episodes, meaning Gunn made about $35,000 for the season.
Gunn was employed as chairman of the fashion design department at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City during Project Runway's first three seasons.
Weinstein's testimony was presented as part of the lawsuit Bravo's NBC Universal parent company filed in response to The Weinstein Company's surprise five-year deal to bring Project Runway to Lifetime beginning with the reality series' sixth season.
