Drag Me to Dinner
Logline: If you want a great party, hire a party planner. If you want an outrageous, unforgettable party, call in someone who makes something fabulous and supremely entertaining out of almost nothing… a Drag Queen! Created and executive produced by and featuring Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka and their celebrity friends, Drag Me to Dinner is the new close-ended comedic competition that doesn’t take itself too seriously. In each of these episodes, two new pairs of visionary Queens go wig-to-wig in a competition to throw the coolest themed dinner party on a dime. Set in a chic yet lo-fi studio, Drag Me to Dinner is a mix of bawdy humor embracing the sharp, unfiltered nature of authentic Drag Culture, and the irreverent fourth wall breaking moments and creative editing of cult hits like Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun and Between Two Ferns. Each episode features something completely unexpected and entertaining. These surprising beats will continue to bring audiences back each week and each season for more hilarious Drag Queen party fun!
