- Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, former Project Runway costars, have partnered on a new Amazon show called Making the Cut.
- Making the Cut will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2020.
- The fashion competition show will feature a panel of five famous judges, including Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie.
When news broke in September 2018 that longtime host and judge Heidi Klum would be leaving Project Runway along with her costar, show mentor Tim Gunn, fans were devastated. The dynamic duo was practically synonymous with the show, after all. But there was one silver lining to the the pair's departure: Heidi and Tim were leaving Project Runway to work on their very own fashion competition series for Amazon Prime Video.
According to E! News, filming is already underway for the new show, which we now know is called Making the Cut. Here, we take a look at everything we know about Heidi and Tim's new Amazon show so far.
What is the release date for Making the Cut?
Unfortunately, there isn't a specific release date for Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn's new show just yet.
How does Making the Cut work?
Heidi and Tim's latest TV venture really isn't all that different from Project Runway: A fashion competition show, Making the Cut will follow 12 entrepreneurs and designers from all over the world as they battle each other to grow their young fashion brands. The winner will take home $1 million to invest in his or her brand.
Perhaps the most unique part of the new Amazon show, however, is the "shoppable experience" that comes with it: According to The Hollywood Reporter, looks featured on the show will be directly available for viewers to purchase on Amazon.
"I'm really trying to straddle the artistry of fashion design and the commerce part of it," Heidi told THR last fall. "When you're online and you're watching your favorite show, which is hopefully going to be ours, you'll have the commerce aspect for the first time. When you see a design that you actually love, you can buy it. It's not only great for the consumer, but it's also amazing for our designers. We never had that aspect where we could actually help the designers to really branch out into the real world like this on Project Runway."
Who are the judges on Making the Cut?
Unsurprisingly, Heidi and Tim have already assembled a group of superstar judges for their new Amazon show: Deadline reports that model Naomi Campbell (who is also a consulting producer for the show), influencer Chiara Ferragni, designer Joseph Altuzarra, actress and fashion icon Nicole Richie, and former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld (who is also the current editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book, a Hearst-owned property) will all hold a spot on the judges' panel in Making the Cut's first season.
This star-studded cast will be worth keeping an eye on for the banter alone.
Are there any other Making the Cut spoilers?
Information about Heidi and Tim's new Amazon show is still limited. What we do know: The Making the Cut crew was spotted filming what appeared to be a runway challenge in Paris in June (so at the very least, the show's first season will take its contestants to France). As far as another spoilers go, however ... we'll just have to wait and see!
