Project Runway recently switched networks, from Bravo to Lifetime for its sixth season, and now the original producers are leaving the show to stay with NBC Universal. Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz of Magical Elves signed an exclusive pact with NBC, causing Project Runway, The Weinstein Company, and Lifetime to start the search for new producers. They are downplaying the search.

"It's the nature of television that outstanding series change some of the producers over their run," Lifetime said in a statement, according to the Los Angeles Times. "Project Runway's success has been a collaborative process among many brilliant 'designers,' and that will continue."
