NBC Universal is pleased that the court granted our motion for a preliminary injunction against The Weinstein Company. 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 spin-off to Lifetime.
The prohibition is not final or permanent, obviously. But it fogs up for now the question of when, where and if a season 6 will air (new producers had already been chosen), while the case continues to unfold.
