One of the most over-the-top and lovable "Project Runway" veterans, season 4 alum Chris March, is returning to reality television.

Bravo announced that it has given the green light to the tentatively titled "Chris March Project," which will feature the theatrical designer, who has become a favorite of celebs including Meryl Streep and Madonna.

"Each week viewers will follow Chris and his eccentric crew of fashion misfits as they create one-of-a-kind designs for his loyal clientele," Bravo said in a statement.

"Tensions are sure to rise as [March] pushes the boundaries of fashion and challenges his clients' comfort zones."

March endeared himself to "PR" fans when he became one of the show's first eliminated contestants to be invited to return to the competition. He ultimately finished fourth in a season that crowned the show's most successful winner -- and March's friend -- Christian Siriano.

March came to "Project Runway" as a veteran theater costume designer who wasn't afraid to push boundaries. He famously shocked the judges by creating a human hair dress long before anyone had heard of Lady Gaga.

Bravo did not announce an air date for the series, said to be in production now. The designer, who operates a studio in New York City and is the author of the witty "I Love Chris March," did not immediately respond to StyleList's request for comment.

This is the fourth series involving "Project Runway" alum since the designing-competition was conceived. The series's first winner, Jay McCarroll, had his post "PR" life chronicled in the short-lived "Project Jay."

Siriano
was featured this year in the single-episode Bravo special "Christian Siriano: Having a Moment." And in July, Lifetime premiered "On the Road With Austin and Santino," a kitschy series featuring show veterans Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice traveling to rural outposts and designing special occasion dresses for random lucky ladies.

In other fashion and beauty reality news, Bravo has also announced plans for a new series featuring Dean Banowetz, a celebrity hairstylist formerly affiliated with "American Idol."

Banowetz will be followed as he makes high-priced house calls, works on a new product line, and opens his Hollywood salon.

Sounds a little bit like Bravo's former series, Jonathan Antin's "Blow Out," doesn't it?
