Dust off the catwalk: Project Runway will make its debut on Lifetime August 20, the network announced today. The date is a bit curious—usually Runway seasons are timed to climax around spring and fall Fashion Week, but since this season’s final competition was held way back in spring Fashion Week, it’s not an issue this time.

Debuting the same night will be Models of the Runway, a half-hour companion competition show about the models who wear the Runway contestants’ fashions. Which makes it another in the small but growing category of reality-shows-I -once-thought-of-as-a-joke-that-some0ne-actually-went-and-made.
