World of Wonder takes Drag Race to Belgium
April 29, 2022
On the heels of announcing Drag Race Sweden at MIPTV, World of Wonder, the LA-based media company, has now added Drag Race Belgique into the Drag Race family.
The new Belgian iteration of the popular entertainment reality format joins existing versions of the global franchise in Thailand, the US, Chile, Canada, Holland, the UK, Spain, Australia and New Zealand, France, the Philippines and Italy.
The deal was brokered by World of Wonder. Drag Race Belgique is already on the hunt for its cast of Queens and will premiere on screens later this year. The Belgian series – which will air in French with subtitles – will also premiere exclusively on WOW Presents Plus in the UK, US and select territories worldwide, with its local airing on a soon-to-be-announced Belgian network.
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. The host, judges, cast, and premiere date of both series will be revealed at a later date.
Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, Co-Founders of World of Wonder, said in a co-statement: “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.”
