Comedy 'AJ and the Queen' Starring RuPaul Ordered to Series at Netflix

Netflix has today given a series order to the original hourlong comedy series AJ and the Queen starring Emmy winner RuPaul (RuPaul's Drag Race). The first season will include 10 episodes.

The comedy stars RuPaul as Ruby Red, a bigger-than-life but down-on-her-life 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.

RuPaul co-created the series with Michael Patrick King. Warner Bros. Television and MPK Productions produce.
