Lifetime sets August return for 'Project Runway'
"Project Runway," subject of a legal skirmish involving Lifetime, NBC-Universal and the Weinstein Company will make its premiere on Thursday, Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. ET. The 14-episode "Project Runway" season will be accompanied by the new half-hour series "Models of the Runway," which looks at the fashion series' models. "Models of the Runaway" will also premiere on Aug. 20, airing at 11 p.m.
Lifetime will have already had a busy summer before that "Project Runway" premiere.
"Army Wives," the network's hit original drama, will begin its third season on Sunday, June 7 in the 10 p.m. hour. Stars Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brigid Brannagh, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller, Terry Serpico, Katelyn Pippy and Catherine Bell don't even need to look at the show's ratings, because "Army Wives" has already been renewed for a fourth run.
The new comedic drama "Drop Dead Diva" will premiere on Sunday, July 12. That series focuses on a shallow model-in-training who dies in an accident, only to have her soul resurrected in the body of a brilliant plus-sized attorney. What happened to the attorney's soul? Wait. That sounds like a lead-in to a joke. Nevermind. In any case, the series stars Brooke Elliott and Margaret Cho.
Lifetime also announced the development of several other possible drama series projects including "Mona Lisa Smile" and "Mystic Pizza: Another Slice," both based on the Julia Roberts feature films. "Marry Me," a limited run relationship anthology series about a couple and their road to marriage, comes from Barbara Hall ("Judging Amy"). "Queens of the Rodeo" uses -- go figure -- the rodeo world as its backdrop. "The Fallen" comes from T. Jefferson Parker's novel. And "Murder in Suburbia" is based on a successful British format.
On the comedy series front, Lifetime has pilots featuring Sherrie Shepherd, Valerie Bertinelli and Cybill Shepherd.
