discovery+ has announced new series, Generate Drag, that follows five teens and their families as they anticipate their biggest drag performance at Dragutante, a drag show designed as a platform for LGBTQ+ teens to express themselves.
The show is produced by Monkey with Tyra Banks on board as exec producer.
The show gives an intimate look at the lives of these families as they courageously support their kids who are navigating their true identities. The series drops all six-episodes on Wednesday, June 1st on discovery+, the definitive non-fiction, real-life subscription streaming service.
“In this heartfelt and joyous coming of age series, Generation Drag celebrates a group of amazingly talented teens who put their creativity, passion, and talent on center stage,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “Jameson, Noah, Vinny, Bailey and Nabela may only be in their teens, yet they are well beyond their years in being true to themselves and recognizing the importance of living authentically. Their story is an inspiration to express yourself at any age!”
“I have such admiration and respect for these teens. They are bravely navigating coming into their own in a world that can be very challenging and not always accepting. What is so beautiful is seeing their parents and siblings supporting them,” says Executive Producer Tyra Banks. “These teens’ laser-focused tenacity inspires my team and me and we are honored to share their stories. I can’t wait for these popping personalities to show their fierceness to the world.”
Ollie Brack, Head of Alternative for Monkey, commented: “We’re incredibly proud to bring the inspirational stories of these fearless teens and their families to the world with this series. We’re thrilled to have partnered with Tyra Banks and discovery+ on this special show and cannot wait for US audiences to experience and fall in love with it.”
GENERATION DRAG is produced by Monkey, which is part of Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Bankable Productions and Cat Fight Productions.
