Not content with having one of the most talked-about reality shows on television, RuPaul is heading to Netflix with a dive into scripted programming. The streaming colossus has ordered an hour-long comedy from Mama Ru and former Sex and the City showrunner Michael Patrick King, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The show, AJ and the Queen, will center on 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. 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."
After snatching an Emmy for hosting RuPaul's Drag Race, Mother is keeping busier than ever. While things get underway with the 10-episode Netflix series, Ru is also working on a Hulu series based loosely on his rise to fame. As of yet there has been no word on who will play Ruby Red's pint-sized partner.
