Drag Race Heads to Belgium


ADVERTISEMENT

World of Wonder’s Drag Race format is getting a new Belgian iteration, following on the heels of Drag Race Sweden.

Drag Race Belgique will be produced in conjunction with World of Wonder Productions. Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and RuPaul serve as executive producers on the series. It is slated to premiere later this year on a soon-to-be-announced Belgian network.

The Belgian series, which will air in French with subtitles, will also premiere exclusively on WOW Presents Plus in the U.K., U.S. and select territories worldwide.

The new Belgian version joins existing treatments of the global franchise in Thailand, the U.S., Chile, Canada, the Netherlands, the U.K., Spain, Australia and New Zealand, France, the Philippines and Italy.

Bailey and Barbato, co-founders of World of Wonder, said, “It’s wonderful to be able to introduce a fierce new group of queens with Drag Race Belgique, and we absolutely love being able to bring untapped talent, new territories and fresh material to screens across the world. We’ve always said that the art of drag is a universal language, and Drag Race proves that time and again. We can’t wait to see what our Belgian queens bring to our ever-expanding drag family!”
