RuPaul is set to star in the new Netflix comedy series “AJ and the Queen.”

According to Deadline, Ru will star “as Ruby Red, a bigger-than-life but down-on-her-luck 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.”

Netflix has ordered 10 episodes for the series which will be penned by Ru and Michael Patrick King (“2 Broke Girls,” “The Comeback”).

This is the second scripted television project for the “Drag Race” host. Hulu is also working on a series based on Ru’s rise from the New York City club scene to fame. J.J. Abrams is on board as executive producer.
