Lifetime has ordered a new fashion competition series called Under the Gunn. It will be hosted by Tim Gunn of the channel’s long-running Project Runway.
Project Runway’s Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos will manage a fashion empire with 15 up-and-coming designers. Each of the three mentors will manage and coach a team of designers. Judging their efforts will be designer Rachel Roy, stylist Jen Rade, and fashion correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi.
The show will debut on January 16th at 9pm. Production on the 13 episodes will begin later this month at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.
What do you think? Does this sound like a good idea? Can Tim Gunn make it work?
