“Netflix has ordered a new comedy series starring RuPaul Charles titled “AJ and the Queen.”
RuPaul stars 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. Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.
Netflix has ordered a 10-episode first season. RuPaul will also write and executive produce with Michael Patrick King also serving as writer and executive producer. King’s MPK Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.” —Joe Otterson/Variety
