RuPaul’s Drag Race favorite Alyssa Edwards is heading to Netflix. The Internet TV network has ordered eight episodes of Dancing Queen, a docuseries starring Drag Race alum Edwards, from World of Wonder Productions. It’s set for premiere globally October 5 on Netflix.
Dancing Queen is described as a hilarious and heartfelt docuseries 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.
