RuPaul's New Comedy Series 'AJ And The Queen' Is Coming To Netflix

RuPaul's New Comedy Series 'AJ And The Queen' Is Coming To Netflix

The first trailer for RuPaul's new scripted comedy series AJ And The Queen has landed, and we've also got a release date. YAAAS!

The Emmy Award-winner's new show sees the introduction of Ruby Red, a "bigger than life but down on her luck" drag queen who is travelling across America in a rundown 90s RV performing from club to club in order to recoup some stolen savings.

She's joined by AJ, a "recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 11-year-old white girl stowaway".

As the mismatched pair travel from city to city, Ruby's message of love and acceptance ends up effecting the lives of people they meet in touching ways.

The official line from Netflix reads: "This fun, outrageous series explores ideas of family, friendship, love, and loss.

"Together they help each other navigate the heartbreaking past, the challenging present and a hopeful future as Ruby and AJ travel the USA searching for a little happiness and the very best breakfast waffle."

What's more, we're promised a "killer musical number" courtesy of RuPaul in every drag club the pair pass through. Sold!

The first trailer for the 10-part series sees the drag queen swap out her usual blonde for a fiery red wig and don a number of new glitzy outfits.

And the best parts we don't have to wait long: the series is dropping on the streaming platform on 10th January 2020.

AJ And The Queen is written and executive produced by RuPaul alongside Michael Patrick King, who is best known for directing, writing and producing Sex And The City. So you can bet we're in good hands.

The multiple Emmy Award-winner wrote and executive produced the show alongside Michael Patrick King, who is best known for directing, writing and producing the iconic HBO comedy, Sex And The City, as well as its two spin-off feature films.

Josh Segarra co-stars as Hector/Damian Sanchez, Ruby Red's "dark and dangerous" boyfriend, while Michael-Leon Wooley will play blind drag queen Louis, and Katerina Tannenbaum will play Brianna, a "clueless hooker" with a connection to AJ.

Tia Carrere is to play Lady Danger, a "comic villain" who is infamous in the local drag scene for (quite comically) injecting cheap silicone into her clients at the clubs.

We think we speak for everyone when we say we CANNOT wait for this.

AJ And The Queen hits Netflix on 10th January 2020.
