Passion Distribution is thrilled to announce it’s first format deal for DRAG RACE, a World of Wonder format. Free TV broadcaster Mega in Chile is producing a brand new local version. The local version is currently in production and is scheduled to air in the last quarter of this year. The license also marks the first deal between Passion and Mega.
DRAG RACE is an elimination competition for drag queens where the winner takes home a fabulous cash prize and where the losers are asked to “sashay away”. Everything is superlative – the heels are higher, the hair is bigger, the cat fights cattier. Outrageous Queens, big guest stars and wild challenges take the talent format to a new and hilarious extreme. 12 talented and overly dramatic beauties are pitted against each in an over-the-top competition and given the chance to fulfil their lifelong dream & win a coveted title. The contestants may be men in stilettos, but the competition is by no means a drag! To win the title of Next Drag Superstar, contestants have to be top models, fashion designers and sheer geniuses all rolled up into one. In each episode, the Queens compete in a mini challenge and a main challenge in front of a panel of esteemed judges. The bottom two are challenged to “Lip Sync for your life” and outshine each other in a battle that needs to be seen to be believed.
In the US, the hit show, produced by World of Wonder, follows the most famous and celebrated drag queen in the world RuPaul as he delivers a dazzling and hilarious performance as judge and mentor to the aspiring drag queen contestants. The US premiere of RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE S7 pulled in a 20% increase from the previous season for Logo. S8 with 10 episodes has been filmed and a new season of RUPAUL’s DRAG RACE ALL STARS is being produced.
