Unsure of which series to add to your watch list? Here are some recommendations!
Our first must-watch is one particular show starring everyone’s favorite hooker from Russia: From Katya with Love has been given the go-ahead for production! Trixie and Katya fans may be familiar with the idea after Trixie and Boyfriend David Silver discussed the idea with Katya on podcast ‘The Bold and The Beautiful‚ last year. The Unscripted dating series is following everyone’s favorite bi-sexual Russian drag hooker, Katya, as she looks for love among a diverse group of singles.
But of course, if you not that into series revolving around finding love (although with Katya as the main star it‘s surely going to be one hell of a wild ride you don‘t want to miss!), here are some more tips to take your streaming experience to the next level:
A supergroup of drag entertainers including BeBe Zahara Benet, Bob the Drag Queen, Monique Heart, Peppermint, and Shea Coulee, Nubia was formed to amplify and uplift Black drag voices. After a sold-out run of live shows in New York last year, the group released a one-hour standalone TV special as a partial response to an exploration of percolating race issues in America. OUTtv has committed to funding a live concert special and additional talk specials to come.
THE SHERRY VINE SHOW
Drag legend Sherry Vine fronts a modern, gay sketch comedy series that only her twisted mind could produce. One part Carol Burnett and the other John Waters, “The Sherry Vine Show,” features guest stars Bianca Del Rio, Bob the Drag Queen, Candis Cayne, Jackie Beat, and more.
The first talk show on a major network hosted by an all-trans cast, the series is fronted by Peppermint, Carmen Carrera, Jiggly Caliente, and Sonique. Join these powerful women as they speak the truth on topics of love, sex, dating, and more. Season One is currently available on OUTtv Canada and Amazon Prime in the US. Season two will be available exclusively on OUTtv USA.
THE ALASKA THUNDERF**K EXTRA SPECIAL COMEDY SPECIAL
Alaska Thunderf**k is proud to present “The Alaska Thunderf**k Extra Special Comedy Special.” Featuring some of Alaska’s greatest musical hits, exciting special guests, and a series of comedic jokes, join Alaska for a one-night-only engagement. Read all about the special here.
Additionally, OUTtv is excited to announce a first-look development deal with Bob the Drag Queen’s production company, Purse First Productions. As part of the deal, OUTtv will be producing a second season of his scripted digital series “Besties.”
