RuPaul and Drag Race legends hit the road in first trailer for Netflix comedy AJ and the Queen
RUPAUL and Drag Race legends hit the road in the first trailer for Netflix comedy AJ and the Queen.
The host of Drag Race plays a down-on-her-luck drag queen called Ruby Red, who has to rebuild her life after her ex-boyfriend and his accomplice steal her $100,000 savings.
Ruby takes her act on the road in a vintage RV and along the way, she meets a feisty 10-year-old stowaway who bribes her into letting her come along for the ride.
The trailer also reveals that a whole host of Drag Race favourites feature in the supporting cast, including Bianca Del Rio, Chad Michaels, Latrice Royale and Jujubee.
Fellow queens Valentina, Eureka O’Hara, Pandora Boxx, Jade Jolie, Kennedy Davenport, Jaymes Mansfield and Trinity The Tuck also appear in series one.
Speaking about the series, which is Ru's first leading role in a scripted television project, the 59-year-old told Entertainment Weekly: "Our humanity, our laughter, our sense of irony. Fashion. Everything.
"It’s all in there. I couldn’t be more proud."
Meanwhile Michael Patrick King, who co-created, wrote and produced the show with Ru, added: "He had to throw his hair around to a song, and he really throws himself into s**t.
"He threw his head around like Ann-Margret slash go-go girl for, like, 12 takes.
"Next day, he couldn’t stand up because he dislodged one of his inner ear crystals."
He continued: "After [Ru] saw the first episode, he turned to me and said, ‘I thought this was going to be the show where I revealed myself to the world.
"It turns out it’s the show where I reveal myself to myself.’”
AJ and the Queen premieres on netflix on January 10, 2020.
