RuPaul continues to set new projects.
The Emmy winner and host of RuPaul’s Drag Race is expanding his patented brand of exuberance by filming a talk show pilot for Telepictures, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Television.
The show will be targeted for a fall 2019 launch and will tape in front of a live studio audience. Concerning content, RuPaul will tailor his signature brand of flamboyance and flair for the talk show format by interviewing celebrities, giving beauty and glam tips, playing games and offering his two-cents on pop culture. His frequent collaborator, Michelle Visage is expected to play a huge part.
RuPaul’s talk show looks to be in good company. Telepictures, the syndication production arm of Warner Bros., has been behind the success of several talk shows including Ellen and recent Emmy-winning show The Real.
Also in the works from RuPaul is an upcoming Netflix series, AJ and the Queen, which he will star in, write and executive produce, and a series at Hulu based on his life from J.J. Abrams.
