Designers, Tim Gunn has news for you.

Series will bring “Runway” alums Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos on board as mentors to teams of designers that battle it out in a series of fashion competitions. The panel of critics lining the judges’ table on “Under the Gunn” include designer Rachel Roy, celeb stylist Jen Rade and Marie Claire’s senior fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi.

Lifetime will debut the 13-episode first run on Jan. 16.

“Under the Gunn” is produced by The Weinstein Company and Bunim-Murray Prods. Executive producers include Bob and Harvey Weinstein (Co-Chairmen of The Weinstein Company), Meryl Poster and Barbara Schneeweiss of The Weinstein Company, Jonathan Murray, Sara Rea and Teri Weidman of Bunim-Murray Productions and Gunn.  Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and David Hillman of Lifetime also executive produce.
