J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot is teaming with drag legend RuPaul and her “Drag Race”-producing company World of Wonder for a half-hour dramedy series for Warner Bros TV.

Penned by “Power” executive producer Gary Lennon, the drama is set in New York City during the Reagan era 1980s and follows San Diego native RuPaul Andre Charles’ rise from club kid to drag queen, gay icon, and global star.

RuPaul, Abrams, Ben Stephenson, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, and Tom Campbell will all executive produce with the series expected to be taken to the marketplace shortly.

Bad Robot also produces “Westworld” for HBO and the upcoming “Castle Rock” for Hulu.
