About Models of the Runway

You've Seen Them Walk the Walk, Now See What Happens Behind the Seams

Lifetime Television and The Weinstein Company give "Project Runway" fans the ultimate, all-access backstage pass with the dazzling new companion series, "Models of the Runway," premiering Thursday, August 20, at 11 pm et/pt. "Models of the Runway" offers viewers — for the first time ever — a no-holds-barred look at everyone’s favorite design series from the models’ perspective. The 16 women vie to be paired with the winning designer of "Project Runway" for a $25,000 cash prize from L’Oreal Skin Genesis and a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine.

ABOUT PROJECT RUNWAY AND MODELS OF THE RUNWAY
Hosted by supermodel and fashion maven Heidi Klum, the hit series "Project Runway" provides budding designers with an opportunity to launch their careers in fashion, under the watchful eye of mentor and Liz Claiborne Chief Creative Officer Tim Gunn. The wildly successful competition reality series has proven to be one of television’s most talked-about shows and was the highest-rated unscripted competition on all of cable for 2008.

"Models of the Runway," an exciting new companion series to "Project Runway," will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the reality competition — from the models’ perspective. Viewers can experience the drama, anxiety, joys, tears and frustrations as the models themselves face elimination each week and compete for a cash prize and photo spread in Marie Claire magazine.

Produced by The Weinstein Company, Miramax Films, Bunim-Murray Productions and Full Picture Productions, "Project Runway" and "Models of the Runway" are executive produced by Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Co-Chairmen of The Weinstein Company, and Jon Murray and Sara Rea of Bunim-Murray Productions ("The Real World"). Heidi Klum, Desiree Gruber and Jane Cha of Full Picture also executive produce both series. Barbara Schneeweiss oversees the production on behalf of The Weinstein Company.
