World of Wonder and J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot have joined forces under the all-mighty mother of drag, RuPaul. The companies jointly announced a half-hour “dramedy” series based on the life of RuPaul. The series will focus on a more fictionalized version of the man that rose from club kid to TV personality. The show will be written by Gary Lennon (Power, Orange is the New Black) and will showcase what life was like during Reagan-era New York for RuPaul and other alternative nightlife personalities.
The show is expected to go to marketplace soon. [G]
The only question left is who will have the uniqueness, talent, and nerve to take on the role of the iconic RuPaul Charles?
