AJ and the Queen: Everything We Know So Far

Cheryl Greenway What's on Netflix Avatar


Emmy winner RuPaul is headed to Netflix with a campy new comedy series from Michael Patrick King.

Earlier in the year, Netflix announced a new RuPaul-led comedy. This week they finally announced the cast. Josh Segarra (Orange Is the New Black), Michael-Leon Wooley (The Princess and the Frog), Katerina Tannenbaum (Sweetbitter) and Tia Carrere (Wayne’s World, Lilo and Stitch) will co-star in the series written by RuPaul and Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City).

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

Stay tuned for more news on the series. A trailer and release date are soon to follow.
