Season 18 (!!) of Project Runway was hosted by Karlie Kloss with mentor Christian Siriano, but if you miss the original team of Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, Amazon’s forthcoming Making the Cut might be for you.
On Monday, Feb. 24, Amazon Prime Video released the trailer for the reality competition series, and it’s feeding off early Project Runway nostalgia. Watch scenes of Klum yelling “Finally! It’s happening!” while running to meet Gunn in the rain and Gunn instructing the 12 contestants, with inspirational verve, “You have an opportunity to lead the next big, global brand. You have to have an intense fire in your belly.”
The new series will have designers competing for a $1 million prize and the opportunity to create a line for Amazon. But unlike other competition series, viewers will be able to purchase the winning look from each episode right after the episode airs.
Deadline reports that Season 1 will consist of 10 episodes, with two episodes airing each week. Judges include Naomi Campbell (who is seen in the trailer admonishing one look, saying, “I’m not putting my mother in that outfit”), Nicole Richie, Chiara Ferragni, Joseph Altuzarra and Carine Roitfeld.
Making the Cut will premiere on Friday, March 27. Watch the star-studded trailer below.
