Multiple-time Emmy Award winner RuPaul has boarded the Paramount+ singing competition series Queen of the Universe as an executive producer.

The series premieres Dec. 2 on Paramount+ in the U.S., and in the Nordics, Latin America, Australia and Canada. In its inaugural season, it’ll see 14 fierce queens vying for the title of “Queen of the Universe” and a $250,000 cash prize.

Each episode will showcase contestants’ vocal skills in front of a live audience and the series’ panel of judges, which include Grammy nominee Vanessa Williams, platinum-selling recording artist and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage, U.S. drag superstar Trixie Mattel and Grammy-nominated singer Leona Lewis. Graham North, a five-time BAFTA TV Award winner, will host the series.

The series has unveiled its 14 queens competing, who hail from around the U.S., as well as Denmark, Australia, Brazil, England, France, Canada, India, Mexico and China.

MTV Entertainment Studios and World of Wonder, the producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race, are producing Queen of the Universe.

The series was originally announced in February as part of a slate of 50 exclusive Paramount+ titles scheduled for the next two years.
