Let the wig-ripping begin!
It looks like a second coming of drag again. First RuPaul will be back with a whole new cat clawing cast of queens in a second season of the RuPaul's Drag Race set to air in Febuary and now another new show is set to begin filming. Producers and reality tv stars join forces to create drag queen comedy with THE QUEENS OF DRAG: NYC. Film and TV producer Larry Kennar (L Word, Barbershop and 50 First Dates), season 4 Project Runway designer Jack Mackenroth and award-winning producer/director and owner of Colt Studio Group, John Rutherford, have come together to produce a television extravaganza called The Queens of Drag: NYC that explores and exploits the glamorous and ghetto-fabulous drag queen scene of New York City.
Drag legend Lady Bunny will reign supreme in this all-star cast of drag divas, which includes the ageless and evergreen Hedda Lettuce
uber-glam Sherry Vine
the hilarious Bianca Del Rio
In addition to these divas, they will be joined by sexpot songstress Peppermint and the classless and campy Mimi Imfurst. Newer, breakout queens nipping at their platform heels like Epiphany, Logan Hardcore, Chanda Lear and Dallas DuBois will join these ladies of illusion. The Queens of Drag: NYC will highlight all the talent and drama that is synonymous with making a living as a drag superstar in the most amazing and unforgiving city in the world. Viewers will see the real grit of drag queens’ lives in and out of drag as they try to dominate the New York nightlife scene and navigate through the struggles of making it in the shiniest, filthiest city in the world. I think it will be great. It will show some people a whole new lifestyle and just how long it takes to get ready, not to mention how hard it is for these queens to be paid to do this for a living. Multiple networks have already expressed interest in the project, and filming is slated to begin in early November. To read more and get some information, please visit www.theQueensofDrag.com.
