Spanish version of RuPaul’s Drag Race heads to Spain

Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato‘s World of Wonder and London-based distributor Passion Distribution are sending the Emmy Award-winning reality competition franchise RuPaul’s Drag Race to Spain.

Drag Race Spain will feature an unnamed cast of Spanish drag queens taking part in weekly challenges that will culminate with contestants presenting themed looks in a runway walk. The series host and a panel of judges will critique each challenger’s performance, with the least impressive routine resulting in elimination.

The host, judges, cast and premiere date of Drag Race Spain will be revealed in the months to come.

The Spanish adaptation will be produced by Atresmedia TV in collaboration with Buendía Estudios. It will be executive produced by World of Wonder’s Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell.

Drag Race Spain will be available to stream on WOW Presents Plus in the UK, U.S. and internationally, and on ATRESplayer Premium in Spain.

The deal with ATRESplayer Premium was brokered by Passion Distribution’s Nick Tanner, director of sales and coproductions, and senior sales manager Eliana Barbosa.

Passion Distribution will distribute the series globally.

Channel 4, Waddell Media team on high-end realty doc

British pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned a fly-on-the-wall documentary from Northern Ireland factual indie Waddell Media that will offer exclusive access into prime property specialists, UK Sotheby’s International Realty.

Selling Britain’s Most Expensive Homes (working title; 1 x 60 minutes) will provide insight into the estate agency that deals with some of the most expensive homes in Britain.

The special will shed light on the secretive lives of some of the UK’s wealthiest individuals and the ensuing mass exodus from major cities to the countryside as a direct result of the enduring COVID-19 pandemic.

Through access to the vendors and buyers, the program will look to determine what is driving the massive changes some of the country’s richest individuals are making to their lives. 

Selling Britain’s Most Expensive Homes is slated to premiere this Christmas on C4.

The one-off film is executive produced by Waddell Media’s Jannine Waddell and Sophie Wurzer-Williams. Lee Salisbury is producer and Colin Rothbart directs.

It was commissioned by Channel 4′s Tim Hancock, commissioning editor for formats and features.
