“The Emmy-winning host of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is bringing his personality to the daytime space, filming a talk show pilot for Telepictures,” writes Debra Birnbaum in a scoop for Variety.
The story continues, “The show, which is targeted for a fall 2019 launch and will be filmed in front of a live audience, will feature the host bringing his unique, positive and aspirational point of view to the format, interviewing celebrities, giving beauty and glam tips, playing games, and dishing on pop culture. He’s not expected to do cooking or exercise segments, which have been typical daytime fare. Frequent collaborator Michelle Visage is also expected to play a major role.
Variety also says that RuPaul “has several other TV projects in the works, including a comedy series for Netflix titled ‘AJ and the Queen,’ in which he will star, as well as write and executive produce with Michael Patrick King. Hulu is also developing a series based on his life with J.J. Abrams serving as executive producer.”
