RuPaul’s life story is being developed into a series that is set to air on Hulu. The beginning stages of this project see RuPaul himself as the co-Executive Producer alongside the other Executive Producer, Gary Lennon, who also serves as the scriptwriter.
Even bigger news is that the series is tapped to be directed by JJ Abrams of Star Wars: The Force Awakens fame.
RuPaul rose to fame as a drag queen in New York City clubs during the 1980’s. During a time where homosexuality was not in the forefront and the HIV/AIDS epidemic had people living in fear, RuPaul broke barriers with this bold art form. Garnering success hosting The RuPaul Show, RuPaul became a public figure widely accepted by the masses.
To this day, he is now host of Emmy-Award nominated, RuPaul’s Drag Race, which has just completed its ninth season.
