The description of the show explains: “This fun, outrageous series explores ideas of family, friendship, love, and loss.
RuPaul told Judge Judy Sheindlin during an Interview in August, “My character parents an 11-year-old child, so I was able to really emotionally revisit myself as a kid. It was a trip. I’ve never done anything like that before. It was the most challenging thing for me as an actor and as a human,”
He added, “The big thing for me is that I wish I’d learned how to process feelings earlier. The human body is kind of like a computer program, and a lot of the feelings that I felt were based on the experiences I’d had. Knowing that feelings are not facts was a message I wish that 11-year-old Ru had heard.”
You can expect fabulous performance by RuPaul in every episode.
