What a blow to the Weinsteins!
The never-ending Project Runway drama took a crazy turn on Friday afternoon.
A New York judge granted the parent company (NBC Universal) of Runway's 'old' home (Bravo) a preliminary injunction which bars the Weinstein Co. from moving the fashiony show to its 'new' home Lifetime for now.
Hope the Weinstiens haven't spent that big pile of cash that Lifetime forked over!
The show was supposed to premiere on Lifetime in January, but with this new ruling, who knows if that will happen!
But, the judge's ruling also bars the NBC people from airing the show on Bravo while the squabbling goes on.
A statement issued by NBC said: “The overwhelming evidence demonstrated that The Weinstein Company violated NBC Universal's right of first refusal to future cycles of ‘Project Runway'. After hearing all of the evidence, the court issued an order prohibiting The Weinstein Company from taking the show or any spinoff to Lifetime.”
The Weinstein Co. said on Friday it will appeal the injunction.
