Drag Race Set for Filipino Adaptation


World of Wonder has confirmed that Drag Race Philippines will be the next international iteration of the Emmy Award-winning franchise.

Drag Race Philippines is slated to premiere exclusively on WOW Presents Plus globally. It is produced in the Philippines by Fullhouse Asia Production Studios in conjunction with World of Wonder Productions. Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Tom Campbell and RuPaul serve as executive producers on the series.

The Filipino version of Drag Race joins existing formats in Thailand, Chile, Canada, Holland, the U.K., Spain, Australia and New Zealand and Italy.

Barbato and Bailey, World of Wonder co-founders, said: “The Drag Race franchise has shined a spotlight on so many incredible queens from around the world, and we are so excited to introduce audiences to the dazzling queens of the Philippines. WOW Presents Plus was created to serve as a springboard for underrepresented voices, so we are thrilled to exclusively premiere Drag Race Philippines on the platform for our global viewers.”
