‘RuPaul’s Drag Race Australia’ Is Officially A Go
Prepare yourself, hunties.
Prepare yourself, hunties, because RuPaul’s Drag Race Australia is coming… hard.
TV Tonight is reporting that ITV Studios Australia has secured the local production rights to the reality show phenomenon, and is currently in negotiations with broadcasters. The aim is to get an Australian version of the program up and running by 2020.
“ITV Studios Australia have secured the rights to arguably one of the biggest formats globally at the moment,” ITV Studios CEO David Mott told TV Tonight. “With Drag Race UK about to launch and already a major hit in the US and other territories we are set to shantay onto Australian screens in 2020.”
“Drag Race has moved on to being a show that captures the imagination of everyone, no matter their age or gender and we will commence discussing with potential broadcast and streaming partners shortly. It will be one of the most talked about and noisy formats next year.”
TV Tonight notes that a host has yet to be confirmed — although surely Drag Race alum Courtney Act would be in the box seat?
In any case, we’ll keep you updated with more information on the series as it drops.
