Netflix signs RuPaul for new comedy
RuPaul to play a drag queen with an 11 year old orphan, travelling across America.
Netflix has signed RuPaul to a new 10 part comedy series, AJ and the Queen, co-created with Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City).
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 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. RuPaul will also perform “a killer musical number” in every drag club.
Further casting and an airdate are yet to be announced.
