The Boulet Brothers have cornered the market on horror drag competition reality shows. It appears that they have also caught the attention of horror streaming service Shudder as a spin-off to their low-budget program Dragula is going mainstream with The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Resurrection.
Shudder is calling this show “Hybrid Horror/Reality Competition/Documentary Feature,” and it will debut on their platform on October 20, 2020.
“We’re so excited to be bringing this special to life, and even more excited that it’s happening just in time for Halloween,” said the Boulet Brothers. “The format is something incredibly different and it truly presents drag in an innovative way that has never been seen on TV before. It’s easily the best content we have ever produced, and the highest level of drag that TV audiences have ever seen. We are so proud of the cast and crew who made this happen, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Shudder to produce it.”
According to the press release, the show will not follow the same format as its flagship series.
“Unlike past seasons of the series which brought competitors to Hollywood, The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Resurrection will travel across the country for in-depth conversations with each artist where they live and work, observing their process as they create their unique looks.
The competitors will be challenged to conceptualize and design three original Halloween-themed looks and present them in performances to be filmed at haunting and horrifying real-world locations including an abandoned Georgia train station and a haunted mansion in the woods of North Carolina. The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Resurrection will also feature music from trans pop icon Kim Petras and gay country music star Orville Peck.”
Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager, had this to say about the upcoming show, “Over three seasons of their pioneering show, the Boulets have been a creative force helping to make horror more outrageous, fun and delightful. We’re excited to have The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Resurrection, on Shudder and can’t wait to share it with our members.”
The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Resurrection will premiere exclusively on Shudder in all territories on Tuesday, October 20.
