Lifetime's Emmy-nominated hit series "Project Runway," 2010's number one competitive reality program on ad-supported cable among Women and Households, will return for its ninth season this summer. Casting is already under way across the country, looking for the brightest new talent in fashion design.

In addition to Season 9 of "Project Runway," fans will be delighted to see the return of "Project Runway All Stars." Eight one-hour episodes of "All Stars" will feature talented and memorable past contestants from the series, who will once again compete against each other in a series of challenges to show they still have the innovation, talent and poise that made them household names. A brand-new series, "Project Accessory," will follow enterprising artists who will be put to the test to create the newest and hottest trends in accessories as they compete for a cash grand prize to help them launch their own fashion accessories business.

"Project Runway All Stars" (see photos from the first "Project Runway All Star Challenge" in 2009) will be produced by The Weinstein Company and Bunim-Murray Productions, and executive produced by Harvey Weinstein ("Project Runway"), Bob Weinstein ("Project Runway"), Meryl Poster ("Chicago"), Barbara Schneeweiss ("Project Runway"), Jon Murray ("Project Runway," "The Real World") and Rob Bagshaw ("Top Chef Masters"). "Project Accessory" will be produced by The Weinstein Company and Goodbye Pictures, and executive produced by Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein, Meryl Poster, Barbara Schneeweiss, Sarah Emanuel and Rich Bye ("Project Runway").
