Epicly Later’d premieres Sept. 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

“THE TRIXIE & KATYA SHOW”

Hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamolodchikova, The Trixie & Katya Show features the girls discussing anything and everything from their points of view. Created out of the pair’s YouTube series UNHhhh, the new show is a hybrid of late night, daytime and advice show with topics ranging from hook-ups and break-ups, fear, God, death, porn and more.

The series is produced by World of Wonder and is executive produced by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Nelson Walters and RuPaul.

The Trixie & Katya Show premieres Nov. 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

“MOST EXPENSIVEST”

Award-winning hip-hop artist 2 Chainz takes audiences on a tour of excess in Most Expensivest.

Starting out as a GQ.com digital series, Most Expensivest, a copro of Condé Nast Entertainment (CNÉ) and Mustache, follows 2 Chainz as he investigates products and services, driven to answer the question: “Is it worth it?” Shot in New York City and Las Vegas, the new series dives into the absurdity of luxurious goods to determine if $4,000 canine cologne, an $800 bottle of beer or $5,000 chicken wings are worth the price tag.

Executive producers for the series are Dawn Ostroff and Joe LaBracio of CNÉ, John Limotte of Mustache, 2 Chainz and Coach Tek.

Most Expensivest airs Nov. 1 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
