Most popularly known for 'RuPaul's Drag Race', RuPaul comes to Netflix with a comedy that he described as having dark themes. The drag star told Vanity Fair, “This show isn’t about a drag queen in a kid's show. This is about a kid in a drag queen’s show. It’s edgy, and it has some dark themes in there. It was something I was eager to explore. To prove to myself that I’m not dead inside. I proved to myself that I could pull those emotions up. It’s intoxicating.” 

RuPaul said the idea for the show arose from Drag Race’s increasing audience of “13-year-old suburban white girls.” RuPaul leads the series as Robert Lee, a performing artist known by his drag name, Ruby Red, who has dreams of opening a club of his own before a hustler scams him out of his life savings, forcing him to hit the road to make extra cash at clubs around the country — all with a stowaway 10-year-old girl (Izzy G.) in tow.
