RuPaul's New Netflix Sitcom - "AJ And The Queen"
As if perpetually-in-motion RuPaul didn't have enough on his plate, now we get word that the queen of all queens will sashay to Netflix for a new hour-long, scripted comedy series titled, AJ and the Queen.
Michael Patrick King (2 Broke Girls, Sex and the City) will team up with the two-time Emmy Award winner for the new original comedy series.
According to Deadline, King and RuPaul will pen the new sitcom which will feature RuPaul 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."
So, two misfits - one tall, one small - sashaying across the country, spreading a message of acceptance and love.
And apparently Mama Ru will lay a killer musical number on us in each of the drag clubs visited.
Kind of like BJ and the Bear meets Touched by an Angel, just with a lot more sass and style.
According to reports, Netflix has ordered a 10-episode first season.
