The series hailed from Charles and 2 Broke Girls co-creator and former Sex and the City showrunner Michael Patrick King.
Written by King and Charles, the series starred RuPaul 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 1990s RV with her unlikely sidekick AJ (Izzy G), a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 9-year-old stowaway. As these two misfits — one tall, one small — travel from city to city, Ruby’s message of love and acceptance winds up touching people and changing their lives for the better. Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.
Josh Segarra, Michael-Leon Wooley, Katerina Tannenbaum and Tia Carrere also starred.
RuPaul and King executive produced. King’s MPK Productions produced in association with Warner Bros. TV.
