RuPaul is sashaying over to Netflix…
Netflix has ordered ten episodes of a one-hour comedy starring RuPaul, called AJ and the Queen.
RuPaul will star 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 1990’s R/V.” Ruby Red will be accompanied on her journey by her sidekick, AJ, “a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 11-year-old stowaway.”
Per Netflix’s release: “Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.”
AJ and the Queen will be executive produced by RuPaul and Michael Patrick King, the showrunner of Sex and the City and co-creator of 2 Broke Girls
A release date for the project has yet to be announced.
