When it rains, it pours, I suppose. Within hours of Seth Aaron's record-breaking win of Project Runway All Stars being televised (he's the first to have won PR proper as well as the All Stars spinoff) comes the news that two Portland designers are going to be competing on another new spinoff, the Tim Gunn-centric Under the Gunn: Brady Lange and Amy Sim.
Though it looks essentially the same as the rest of the shows that make up the franchise, the deal with Gunn seems to be that not only are the design competitors in question subjected to the usual types of challenges, but three former PR competitors (hi, Mondo!) will also be tested to see if they have what it takes to be Gunn-esque mentors. The judges this time will be Rachel Roy, stylist Jen Rade, and Marie Claire Senior Fashion Editor Zanna Roberts Rassi, with guest judges said to include Heidi Klum (inevitably) and Neil Patrick Harris (?!).
The show premieres on Thursday (Jan 16) at 9 on Lifetime.
