The show, much like one decade of RuPaul's life, will be set in the 1980s, and center around queer New York City life under Reagan (an obviously fraught time, given that "under Reagan" also means under his cruel silence and inaction amidst the AIDS epidemic). The show is about to begin its ninth season, and RuPaul won an Emmy Award for best reality series host for his work. "Bad Robot, Abrams" production company, and World of Wonder will produce the show. Some of his early career highlights include him appearing as a featured dancer in the B-52s video for "Love Shack", meeting a young Madonna, and being crowned the "Queen of Manhattan". RuPaul became the spokesperson for MAC Cosmetics, and became the first drag queen supermodel. His star spread to the United Kingdom when he began appearing on the series Manhattan Cable, produced by World of Wonder, a company that also produces Drag Race.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams is developing a new TV series based on the rise of drag icon RuPaul.
