Shangela, Bob the Drag Queen and Eureka O'Hara want We're Here internationalAugust 13, 2020
Shangela, Bob the Drag Queen and Eureka O’Hara are hoping to take their incredible series We’re Here international – and we’re behind them all the way.
The HBO show, which sees the former RuPaul’s Drag Race stars travel across the United States to recruit small-town residents to participate in one-night-only drag shows, first landed in April.
It was quickly snapped up for a second season and has also received an Emmy nomination for outstanding unstructured reality program.
And the trio is busy plotting the future of We’re Here, eyeing up even more series and more accolades.
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk ahead of We’re Here launching on Sky One and NOW TV, Shangela and Eureka shared their vision for the feel-good programme going forward.
‘We have high hopes for this show, period,’ Eureka enthused. ‘Me, Bob and Shangela are hard-working entertainers and we’re going to put our best foot forward. We’ve got HBO and IPC behind us.
‘I have a feeling we’re going to have longevity. People love the show so our goal, is we want to have 10 to 15 seasons like everybody else.’
They continued: ‘We want 12 Emmy nominations next year instead of one. We’re here for the buffet. We’re going to do whatever we can to be successful.’
Shangela added: ‘The brilliant thing is that there are really powerful and gripping personal stories that deserve to be told, not only in America but all around the world.
‘You don’t have to be from a small town in America to watch this show and take something away from it. We all have these similar experiences, we know what it feels like to be on the outskirts, we know what it feels like to feel discriminated against or out of place.
‘You don’t even have to be gay or part of the queer community for watching We’re Here.’
Setting her sights on taking We’re Here across the globe, Shangela beamed: ‘We would love to go around the world with this show.’
‘I think that’s why there’s promise of longevity for our show,’ agreed Eureka. ‘There are so many stories out there.’
Time to make a UK version happen, ladies!
All episodes of We’re Here will be available on Sky One & streaming service NOW TV from 14thAugust2020.
