has dropped the official trailer for RuPaul’s new scripted series.
“AJ and the Queen,” created by
RuPaul with Michael Patrick King (“Sex and the City”), debuts on the streaming
network in January, and although we’ve gotten a quick teaser trailer for it
already, this is the first extended look we’ve been given to date.
show’s synopsis, according to the press material, reads:
Lee (RuPaul), better known as the drag queen Ruby Red, has big dreams of
opening his very own drag club. After years of performing in clubs all across
the country, he has scrimped and saved and is one signed lease away from
turning his dreams into a reality until he realizes he’s been swindled by a
charismatic grifter (Josh Segarra) and his eye-patch wearing partner-in-crime,
Lady Danger (Tia Carrere). With his heart broken and money stolen, Robert has
no choice but to pick up the pieces and start over, and a cross country Ruby
Red roadshow provides the perfect opportunity to do just that.
when AJ (Izzy G.), a scrappy, streetwise 10-year-old escaping a difficult home
life, stows away in Robert’s rundown RV, the consummate performer suddenly
finds himself in a new set of shoes: de facto parent. Fabulously mismatched yet
perfectly paired, AJ and Ruby must find a way to navigate through tough times
as they learn a few tricks from one another and roll on to brighter days.
Michael-Leon Wooley and Katerina Tannenbaum also co-star.”
The show lists Michael Patrick King, RuPaul Charles, and Jhoni Marchinko as Executive Producers, with King as the showrunner. It’s produced by MPK Productions in association with Warner Bros. TV.
