Don’t Miss RuPaul In The New Netflix Comedy “AJ and the Queen”

by Chris Narloch

RuPaul is everywhere these days, or so it seems. Hot on the (high) heels of his recent appearance in Sacramento at CA Museum’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony, RuPaul is back, this time in “AJ and the Queen,” a brand new comedy available on Netflix beginning Jan. 10.

In the scripted series, RuPaul plays Robert Lee, better known as the drag queen Ruby Red, who has dreams of opening his very own drag club after years of performing all across the country. He has scrimped and saved and is one signed lease away from turning his dreams into a reality when disaster strikes.


After our hero realizes that he’s been swindled by a charismatic grifter (Josh Segarra) and his eye-patch wearing partner-in-crime, Lady Danger (Tia Carrere), Robert has no choice but to pick up the pieces and start over, and a cross country Ruby Red roadshow provides the perfect opportunity to do just that.

But when AJ (Izzy G.), a scrappy, streetwise 10-year-old escaping a difficult home life, stows away in Robert’s rundown RV, the consummate performer suddenly finds himself in a new set of shoes: de facto parent.

Fabulously mismatched yet perfectly paired, AJ and Ruby must find a way to navigate through tough times as they learn a few tricks from one another and roll on to brighter days.

Created by Michael Patrick King (“Sex and the City”) and RuPaul, and featuring performances by RuPaul in each episode, “AJ and the Queen” is an equally heartfelt and gritty comedy about finding family in the unlikeliest of places.
