HBO has greenlit non-scripted “We’re Here” for a second season. Debuting in April, the series features former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara and Shangela as they travel across the United States to recruit small-town residents to participate in one-night-only drag shows.
The towns traveled to in the six-episode first season of “We’re Here” include Gettysburg, PA; Twin Falls, ID; Branson, MO; Farmington, NM; and Ruston, LA. The season finale aired this past Thursday, with a dive into the queens’ own stories of struggle and perseverance, ending with a celebration of love and taking pride in oneself.
“We’re Here” is created by Stephen Warren and Johnnie Ingram. Season one was directed by Peter LoGreco, who executive produced alongside Warren, Ingram, and Eli Holzman & Aaron Saidman for Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC). Caldwell Tidicue (Bob the Drag Queen), David Huggard (Eureka O’Hara) and D.J. Pierce (Shangela Laquifa Wadley) served as consulting producers.
