Yas! Sasha Velour has landed a “lip sync spectacular” spin-off series.

The Drag Race star – who won the ninth season of the Emmy-winning show back in 2017 – is bringing their widely-acclaimed high-concept show Nightgowns to the upcoming short-form digital service Quibi.

The series, which will consist of eight episodes, will follow Sasha and the members of their team as they craft a legendary lip sync performance, all while we go behind-the-scenes of their creative process.

According to Deadline, each episode “draws us to one performer in particular, and reveals their daily life, process, and backstory, culminating in a 2-3 minute made-for-mobile visual expression of their live number, directed by Sophie Muller”.

Muller is a highly-acclaimed director, and is best known for her work on pop music videos such as Cool (Gwen Stefani), Family Portrait (Pink), Don’t Speak (No Doubt), Stay (Rihanna) and Deja Vu (Beyoncé).

Sasha will executive produce the series alongside Oscar-nominated producers at The Documentary Group. “I’m so excited for you to see the next stage of this very special drag show!” Sasha said in a statement.

Alongside NightgownsQuibi will feature programs from Chrissy Teigen, Tyra Banks, Steven Spielberg, Scooter Braun and Jennifer Lopez. The streaming service will launch in 2020.

Next week, Sasha will be bringing their first solo show Smoke and Mirrors to the UK. Purchase tickets here!
