Danger, who based the film on a previous short she directed titled Marmalade, will produce the indie via her A Cowboy Named Danger Productions banner, along with Cecile Cubilo for Rated Elle Productions, while and Lainie Guidry will serve as executive producer for Lane E Productions.
“I’ve always been intrigued by drag queens, but I’ve never felt we’ve been able to see their at-home-lives nearly enough in previous narratives,” said Danger. “It’s been an absolute blast learning from these ladies and I can’t wait to translate that onto the screen.”
