Court grants injunction blocking Project Runway on Lifetime

Filed by Lucire staff/September 26, 2008/23.23

A New York court has agreed with NBC Universal’s preliminary injunction application, preventing the shifting of the reality TV show Project Runway to Lifetime. The application alleged that NBC Universal’s right of first refusal was violated.
   Project Runway current airs on NBC Universal’s Bravo cable channel in the US, but Lifetime had announced a $150 million deal earlier this year saying it had secured the next five seasons of the show.
   NBC Universal has also filed a breach of contract lawsuit with the Weinstein Co., which produces the show. A motion to dismiss the suit was denied.
   Lifetime has been ordered by the court to cease ‘promotion, marketing and exhibition’ of the show.
   The show was originally planned to air in November, but Lifetime had announced that that had been postponed to January.
