The Producers Speak

As we mentioned yesterday, the original producers of Project Runway, who have been with the show since season one, will be leaving the show at the end of its Bravo run this upcoming fifth season.

The duo, Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, are now speaking out about their decision to part with their baby.

Cutforth says, “We didn’t have an issue with Project Runway going to Lifetime per se, and we’d both be surprised if it didn’t work for that network.”

That's sort of putting it nicely.

Cutforth adds, “When we started doing Project Runway five years ago, we weren’t really a production company. We were two producers taking work on a for-hire basis. But Project Runway became a huge part of our company and we are very much known for it. We’ve been trying to grow our business and it doesn’t make much sense to keep on with it — as much as we love Project Runway.”

As for Lipsitz, she says, “Even though technically we didn’t create the show, we created the `creative’ of the show. We gave the show its style and emotional level. It’s not easy to walk away from it, by any means. All big decisions are complicated and you have to make sacrifices. Our emotional side is with Project Runway but our business side has to take over so we can build the company.”

Money always motivates people, though.

As for season five of the show which will debut this June, Cutforth says, “We’re excited about the cast and are always looking for a balance of talent and unforgettable characters,” says Cutforth. “I think one teaser I’ll give is, you’ll never look at tanning beds the same way.”

And will the duo watch the next season of Project Runway?

Cutforth states, "It would be weird, like going to an ex-girlfriend’s wedding. We might go but we won’t be dancing.”

Yea, and they'll be counting down the days until they get divorced!

    Why are the producers taking credit for the emotional aspect of the show. I think the people on the show made the emotional level. What did the producers do besides kick people off that they thought wouldn't get them high enough ratings and keeping the drama queens on. It's all about money and ratings to producers, nothing more, nothing less. Screw them.

    I love PR. I don't mind it going to Lifetime as long as they don't screw around with it too much. I'm worried that they'll try to mess with a good formula.

    Gotta say a lot of great PR lines have come out of this mess. Between this comment re the ex-girlfriends wedding but not dancing and the one a few weeks back about Bravo having more legs than Heidi Klum ….it is all just hysterical.
