RuPaul is heading to Netflix in the drag queen series of our dreams.
The drag icon has teamed up with Sex and the City creator Michael Patrick King for a 10-episode dramedy AJ and the Queen. RuPaul will executive produce the series and star as Ruby, a drag queen down on her luck who travels the country in her beat-up RV. She ends up with a scrappy and bluntly honest 11-year old stowaway named AJ and together they set out to change hearts and minds across America. Netflix also promises that RuPaul will have a fantastic musical number at every club Ruby visits in the show.
Basically, this is show sounds amazing and may be the only thing that can fill the fabulous hole that will be left in our hearts when we have no more Titus on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (or during those seemingly endless hiatuses between Drag Race seasons).
RuPaul's new scripted series should not affect future seasons of VH1's Drag Race. Trust the queen to multitask, y'all, Ru knows how to werk.
