More LGBT-Friendly Shows Coming to Logo, Including a Game Show With RuPaul
The network announced today that RuPaul will be hosting Gay For Play Game Show Starring RuPaul, set to premiere in the spring. Each half-hour episode will see six celebrities helping two contestants answer pop culture questions to win cash and prizes.
The drag queen will still host RuPaul’s Drag Race, returning this year for Season 8, and the second edition of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race, also airing later this year. Contestants for the All Stars special will be revealed on Monday, February 1 at 10/9c on Logo’s annual special, New Now Next Honors.
But first, another new show coming to the network is the half-hour variety sketch show Gay Skit Happens, premiering on Monday, Feb. 8 at 10/9c and airing once every quarter with a new host. Daniel Franzese (Damian from Mean Girls) will be the host of the Valentine’s Day-themed debut ep, which will see comedians skewer everything that’s “funny in love, dating, relationships and sex in the age of social media.” Later in the summer, Vivica A. Fox (who recently guest starred as Cookie’s sister on Empire) will take over as host.
And for fans of Cocktails & Classics, host Michael Urie will be back soon for Season 3 to share more insider gossip on classic films.
Logo has also partnered exclusively with GLAAD to broadcast the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in April.
