"RuPaul stars as Ruby Red, a bigger-than-life but down-on-her-luck drag queen who travels across America from club to club in a rundown 1990's R/V with her unlikely sidekick AJ, a recently orphaned, tough-talking, scrappy 11-year-old stowaway," a press release from the streaming service said.

Michael Patrick King -- whose credits include Sex and the City -- wrote the series.

Charles' competition show RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars was renewed last month for a fourth season.

Charles was honored in March with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
