"Make it work!" maestro and dubious-glare expert Tim Gunn (of "Project Runway" fame) has landed his own fashion competition reality series on Lifetime, appropriately titled "Under the Gunn." And Harvey Weinstein is executive producing.

The general format sounds very similar to "Runway," with a board of mentors to the teams of designers (including "Runway" alums Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos), and a judges table (including designer Rachel Roy and Marie-Claire senior fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rossi).

The 13-episode series debuts on Lifetime January 16.
