It's time for Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn to sashay, shante right off the runway.
The Emmy Award-winning team is leaving Project Runway after 16 seasons on the fashion competition series, The Hollywood Reporter revealed Friday. Although Project Runway is returning to its original home at Bravo, the duo are moving on to a new "global fashion competition series" with Amazon, The Hollywood Reporter says. Amazon is keeping the details of this latest venture top secret, only revealing that it "will make fashion accessible to a wide and global audience and offer a fresh take in the reality space."
Project Runway had suffered a series of unfortunate events at Lifetime following the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct allegations. In 2016 the show was renewed for three additional seasons in a contract with The Weinstein Co., but after the allegations against Weinstein surfaced and the company went bankrupt, the contract abruptly ended after season 16 aired. Bravo quickly swept in and picked up Project Runway for a 17th season.
The network has yet to reveal its new hosts with Klum and Gunn, as well as designer Zac Posen, not returning. And though it may be hard to imagine Project Runway without its two original faces, at least Amazon will be trying to make it work. Read more at The Hollywood Reporter. Amari Pollard
