Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne will be making a return to BBC Three in the coming months as the star of her own show, The Vivienne Takes On Hollywood.
“[The] UK’s first Drag Superstar The Vivienne is embarking on an adventure to Hollywood where, each week, she’ll be joined by a different celebrity co-pilot who helps her along the way to making her first ever music video,” says the BBC in a statement about forthcoming programming.
“As The Vivienne is a fish out of water, she spends time with numerous Hollywood legends, all of whom guide her on the journey to see what it takes to make it in this city.”
The series, which consists of six 15-minute episodes, will follow the Liverpudlian queen as she meets Hollywood pros including Tony Award-winning singer Marissa Jaret Winokur, Emmy Award-winner (and guest Drag Race judge) Bruce Vilanch, choreographer Mark Kanemura and All Stars winner Chad Michaels.
Unlike the US seasons of Drag Race where the winners receive a cash prize of $100,000, the BBC’s UK version offered the winning queen the opportunity to create their own mini-series with production company World of Wonder.
Sharing a screenshot of the announcement on her social media pages, The Vivienne said: “Some amazing news! BBC will be airing my brand new show! ‘The Vivienne Takes On Hollywood!’ I’m so excited that you guys get to see this!”
An exact air date for the series is still to be announced, but it will be shown on digital-only channel BBC Three.
