Out100 honoree Trixie Mattel and frequent collaborator Katya Zamolodchikova are building an empire. Truly! Today, they've launched only the latest wing with a new series for Netflix.
Having both graduated from the school of RuPaul's Drag Race, the pair started with their longrunning show UNHhhh, launched on YouTube in 2016. That show was put on hiatus in 2017 to give way to the Trixie & Katya Show on VICELAND which ran for a season, before UNHhhh picked back up in 2018. Now, it has company in the form of I Like to Watch, a new series created exclusively for a Netflix YouTube channel.
With the first episode debuting today, I Like to Watch features Trixie and Katya doing live reactions to popular Netflix shows — spoiler alerts incoming. In the clip, the pair watch scenes of The Crown season three providing commentary in their trademark comedy. Of course, they are also in full drag. More weekly episodes are expected over the next month, all released on the Prism channel, which houses LGBTQ+ content from Netflix.
In addition to their shows, the pair have quite a full plate already: Late last month they announced their book Trixie and Katya's Guide to Modern Womanhood, which is currently on pre-sale. It's expected to debut in May 2020.
Mattel also has a slew of solo projects. Her documentary Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts, which toured the festival circuit this year, will release widely on December 3. It will hit iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Micosoft Movies in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia. She is also prepping her album Barbara as well as the Trixie Mattel: Grown Up tour for 2020. This all comes in addition to running Trixie Cosmetics, the beauty brand she founded and operates. For that, in addition to products, she releases campy tutorials and commercials.
