Nbc, Weinsteins Wrangle Over Project Runway

Subscribe to NBC alerts

Continuing a highly charged game of chess with the Weinstein Co., which has announced plans to move its cable hit Project Runway from NBC-owned Bravo to Lifetime, NBC Universal said Monday that it had signed Runway's creators and producers to a longterm contract. NBC had previously sued the Weinstein Co., maintaining that it had given NBC a right of first refusal to the show. Monday's announced deal with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz will prevent the pair from accompanying the show to Lifetime. The Weinstein Co., which already had signed Heidi Klum to continue hosting the show and fashion guru Tim Gunn to continue as a judge, issued a terse statement calling Cutforth and Lipsitz "fantastic producers, and we wish them well."

In reporting on a new radio adaptation of the James Bond thriller, Dr. No, we noted Monday that David Suchet, the actor playing the title character, had previously starred in the British TV series: Agatha Christie: Poirot. We incorrectly stated, however, that the series aired on the BBC. It in fact aired on LWT (London Weekend Television), now known as ITV1.
