NEW YORK, NY – October 27, 2016 – Logo today announced that "RuPaul's Drag Race" season 6 winner and fan favorite Bianca Del Rio will star in "Not Today Bianca," two original half-hour comedy specials that follow the drag queen superstar as she takes on Hollywood. Debuting this December, the specials will co-star Emmy® Award-winner RuPaul, comedy actress and Emmy® Award-winner Kristen Johnston; actress and New York Times bestselling author Tori Spelling; Tony® Award-winning actress and Broadway star Marissa Jaret Winkour; "RuPaul's Drag Race" Judge, Michelle Visage, TV host and personality Ross Mathews as well as Hollywood's favorite BFF Rightor Doyle.

After winning "RuPaul's Drag Race" season 6, Bianca Del Rio's career has been on fire. She has toured the world playing for sold out crowds and most recently starred in her own movie, "Hurricane Bianca." In these two comedic specials, Del Rio takes her career to the next level and has moved to Hollywood to take on the world. In the first special, Bianca tries to flex her celebrity to go after a booking on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," while in the second special Bianca learns the true meaning of the holidays.
"When Logo offered me my own comedy special, I said, 'Let's make it a double,'" cracked Bianca Del Rio. "Partnering with World of Wonder, the twisted minds behind RuPaul's Drag Race, we mixed our favorite '90s movies, a splash of Broad City and topped if off with a pint of cheap vodka. The results are two off-the-wall episodes of Not Today Bianca that are based on my own sad and hilarious life since moving to Los Angeles."
"Bianca's sharp wit and hilarious sense of humor create the perfect comedy storm," said Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming for Logo. "Logo viewers are some of Bianca's biggest fans and we are excited to have her back to deliver more laughs to the masses."
Viewers will get to relive the fan favorite season that saw Bianca snatch the crown with "RuPaul's Drag Race: Season 6 RuVealed," premiering Thursday, November 3rd at 8:00 PM ET/PT on Logo. The never-before-seen look into the unforgettable season is packed with fresh reads and behind-the-scenes gossip from Ru herself. For a sneak peek of "RuVealed" head to logotv.com/video-clips/jwr0je.
