RuPaul is busy! Alongside the continuing & growing success of Drag Race, two new series featuring the drag superstar are in the works. The first is coming soon via Drag Race producer World Of Wonder’s new streaming platform, WOW Presents Plus. It sees RuPaul as an animated unicorn alonhside a bevy of drag queen toddlers. Those youngsters are voiced by Drag Race alums such as Bianca Del Rio as Dina Saur, Adore Delano as Roxy Moron, Latrice Royale as Lady Liber T, Detox as Donatella Mewhattodoo, and Valentina as Arugula.
The trailer for the show has arrived, which you can take a look at below. Drag Tots starts streaming on WOW Presents Plus on June 28th.
More Ru will also be coming soon, with a 10-part show that’s just been ordered by Netflix. This is a live-action outing, which comes with some other illustrious talent involved, as Sex & The City showrunner Michael Patrick King is helping brings the series to life.
According to THR the series, currently titled AJ and the Queen, ‘will follow RuPaul as Ruby Red, a bigger-than-life but down-on-her-luck drag queen who travels across America from club to club in a rundown 1990s RV with her unlikely sidekick, AJ, a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 11-year-old stowaway. As these two misfits, one tall, one small, travel from city to city, Ruby’s message of love and acceptance winds up touching people and changing their lives for the better. Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.’
Netflix has ordered 10 hour-long episodes of the show. RuPaul and King will co-write and produce the series, although there’s no news on exactly when we’ll get to see it.
If all that weren’t enough, the drag legend is also involved in the previously announced Queen over at Hulu, loosely based on his rise from club kid to drag queen superstar.
