Deadline

RuPaul is heading to Netflix as the star of AJ and the Queen, a new original comedy series.

Warner Bros. TV where King is based, is the studio.

Written by RuPaul and King, the series stars 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.

Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.
