In press release:
LIFETIME AND YAHOO TV PARTNER TO PREMIERE
SPECIAL ROAD TO THE RUNWAY ONLINE
One Hour Project Runway Casting Special Now Available
to Promote Emmy® Nominated Series’ August 6 Linear Premiere
In advance of Emmy® Award nominated Project Runway’s (#ProjectRunway) upcoming Season 14 debut, Lifetime and Yahoo TV have partnered to premiere the hour-long casting special Road to the Runway online, effective immediately. Introducing this season’s set of designers with home and closet tours of each contestant and giving a first look into what’s in store for the series’ 14th season, Road to the Runway will air linearly at 8pm ET/PT next Thursday, August 6th, leading into Project Runway’s return at 9pm ET/PT.
Road to the Runway will also be available for preview on demand through A+E Networks’ cable, satellite, and telco distribution partners, myLifetime.com and the Lifetime App (via iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone, Apple TV, Roku, Xbox 360 and Amazon Fire TV).
Recently nominated for four Emmys, including Outstanding Reality-Competition Program and Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program, Project Runway returns with 16 new hopeful designers competing for fashion glory. With New York as their canvas for inspiration, the fashion adventure of their lives will only last as long as they continue to impress judges Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen, and mentor Gunn. But no decision is ever final, as Gunn will once again have an opportunity to “save” one designer from being eliminated.
Guest judges this season include Bella Thorne (Scream), Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish), Paula Patton (About Last Night), Ashley Tisdale (Clipped), Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer (UnREAL), singer/songwriter Ciara Singer and America’s Got Talent judge Mel B, Supermodel Coco Rocha, fashion designer Lisa Perr and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and host of Lifetime’s Project Runway Junior, Hannah Davis
