‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Is Coming To Holland
RuPaul’s Drag Race is coming to Holland.
According to Deadline, production company World of Wonder has signed a deal to bring the VH1 reality hit to the country in partnership with broadcaster RTL and Dutch firm Vincent TV.
The first season of Drag Race Holland will contain eight 60-minute episodes and 10 Dutch queens who will be competing for the coveted crown. While no judges or hosts have been announced just yet, viewers in the Netherlands will be able to tune into the new show on RTL’s SVoD platform Videoland and on WOW Presents Plus.
According to the press release, the new version is set to be the first non-English language version of the show to be made available internationally, as viewers in the UK and Canada will also be able to catch the show on WOW Presents Plus. (No news yet on if this is coming to the U.S.)
RuPaul’s Drag Race is coming to Holland with a Dutch version of the show set to debut in 2021. Canada’s Drag Race recently premiered on Crave.
“After more than five years of developing this great format for the Dutch market, we believe finally the time is right for Drag Race Holland!” said Vincent her Voert, the founder and executive producer of the show. “Our Dutch queens have been patiently waiting for a local broadcaster to acknowledge the urgency and beauty of this very successful entertainment show. We are thankful to Videoland to underline the importance of diversity and bring this show to a very wide audience.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race just wrapped up an All Stars version stateside. RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is set to come back for a second season, and Canada’s Drag Race recently debuted on Crave. Like the Canadian version, RuPaul is not expected to be heavily involved.
