Los Angeles-based prodco World of Wonder, the shop behind the Emmy-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race, has unveiled an expanded slate of original series produced exclusively for its subscription streaming service.

WOW Presents Plus, which launched in November, is an SVOD platform that aims to curate programming from the company’s library of films, TV shows, live events and now, original series.

WOW will produce five new series for the platform, slated to roll out in early 2018.

Jasmine Masters Master Class (pictured), features Jasmine Masters from RuPaul’s Drag Race giving lessons on manners and etiquette, while in His Vintage Touch, hair sculptor Tony Medina gives tips and tricks for creating your own “vintage touch” style.

In an effort to celebrate the arts, Seth Bogart: Feeling Fruity features LA underground artist Seth Bogard and Kaplan Twins’ Adventures in Painting follows up-and-coming artists and identical sisters, Allie and Lexie Kaplan.

Finally, World of Wonder co-founders Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey will executive produce WOW’s first animated series, Drag Tots, which is set in a grammar school for baby drag queens. RuPaul and Tom Campbell also serve as exec producers on the series.

“The early success of WOW Presents Plus has been overwhelming, beating even our own subscriber targets by more than 250%,” said Barbato and Bailey in a joint statement. “The global excitement we have witnessed around the platform shows that audiences worldwide are hungry for this kind of diverse programming. Between linear television, live event programming, and a quickly growing digital footprint, World of Wonder is dedicated to to bringing multi-platform, around-the-clock entertainment to our ever growing tribe.”
