RuPaul’s Drag Race Heads Down Under
Emmy-winning production company World of Wonder is bringing RuPaul’s drag queen reality series to New Zealand and Australia, and it will be appropriately titled RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under, Dino-Ray Ramos reports for Deadline.
RuPaul will serve as host and executive producer and will join Drag Race staple Michelle Visage on the judges’ panel. Production has already begun in New Zealand with the series premiering later this year.
Much like the US and other international editions, Drag Race Down Under will see the fiercest queens across New Zealand and Australia going head-to-head, in the hopes of taking home the title of Down Under’s first Drag Superstar, Ramos reports.
“I cannot wait for everyone to see that Down Under queens have some of the biggest charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talents in the world,” RuPaul said. “Thank you to … TVNZ OnDemand for providing a platform for these outrageous drag artists to share their heart, soul and humour.”
