'AJ And The Queen' Teaser: First Look At RuPaul's Netflix Scripted Comedy Series

Netflix has dropped a teaser and revealed the premiere date for AJ and the Queen. 

The official description from Netflix reads: RuPaul stars as Robert Lee, known as Ruby Red, a bigger than life but down on her luck drag queen who travels across America from club to club in a rundown 1990’s van, in order to recoup the savings recently stolen from her. She’s paired up with AJ, a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 11-year-old stowaway. As these two misfits, one tall – one small, travel from city to city, Ruby’s message of love and acceptance winds up touching people and changes their lives a little for the better. This fun, outrageous series explores ideas of family, friendship, love, and loss. Together they help each other navigate the heartbreaking past, the challenging present and a hopeful future as Ruby and AJ travel the USA searching for a little happiness and the very best breakfast waffle. Part Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Part Touched by an Angel. Oh, and RuPaul performs a killer musical number in every drag club.

Created by RuPaul Charles and Michael Patrick King, the series is produced by MPK Productions with Warner Bros. Television.

The series will premiere on January 10.

The teaser is a montage of shots of Ruby Red. Watch below:
