This is just RIDICULOUSLY fun news. RuPaul’s Drag Race has given us an array of rising drag stars in fields like fashion, movies, music and TV hosting, but of all the girls who came through Mama Ru’s ranks, Alyssa Edwards is sent-by-heaven to have her own reality series. Too much in every sense of the word – which is a prime quality to have in a reality TV star – Alyssa’s also the type of savant who inadvertently drops stunningly on point observations and scathing critiques seemingly without a moment’s thought.
Miss Press Release will fill you in on the details:
“Dancing Queen” is a hilarious and heartfelt docu-series set in the dancing, prancing, world of the multi-talented, multi-layered Justin Johnson – aka Drag Superstar Alyssa Edwards – as he juggles his dance life, drag life, family life, and love life. Filmed in Justin’s hometown of Mesquite, Texas, Dancing Queen goes behind the makeup and into the drag performer’s highly competitive Beyond Belief Dance Company as he prepares a young class for an intensely competitive season. The series is produced by World of Wonder Productions with executive producers Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Roy Orecchio and RuPaul Charles.
“Dancing Queen” launches globally on Netflix October 5, 2018
