Ready for Drag Queen Versions of Classic Sitcoms Like ‘Brady Bunch’?

 

 

 

Dragging the Classics: The Brady Bunch will debut on Paramount+ beginning Wednesday in what is expected to be the first in a planned series that will re-visit classic sitcoms with casts of vamping drag queens, according to a Variety report.

 

 

The Paramount+ show is a mash-up of two ViacomCBS owned shows ,The Brady Bunch and VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, with drag performers joining original cast members in a re-telling of the season two episode “Will the Real Jan Brady Please Stand Up?”  Marcia Brady will be played by drag queen Shea Couleé, and Carol Brady will be played by Drag Race season six winner Bianca Del Rio. Greg Brady and Jan Brady will be played by Ben DeLaCreme and Kylie Sonique Love, respectively with RuPaul expected to make an appearance as well.

.According to Variety, the ensemble is on the lookout for more classic sitcoms to remake as drag shows. The Golden Girls, Happy Days, Bewitched, Who’s the Boss, Laverne & Shirley, Married…with Children, Diff’rent Strokes, The Nanny, and Designing Women are among the other TV shows cited in a cast interview. I’m not sure who this is for, but since most drag shows are insufferable, this is definitely NOT for me.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
