Australian RuPaul’s Drag Race star, TV personality, and singer Courtney Act has filmed a new TV pilot for Network 10 called Courtney’s Closet.

The show is a fusion of interview and drag makeover show. The first episode features actor Luke McGregor (Rosehaven).

In a tweet, Act explained the show, writing, “‘Courtney’s Closet’ is coming down the birth canal purse first and will stream exclusively on Ten Play from the 4th of July. 

“Courtney’s Closet is the place where well-known Australians arrive as themselves and depart as their ultimate drag fantasy.”

Act went on to write, “I’ll draw out cracking yarns, good conversation & the true essence of each guest before revealing their new look. 

“This isn’t about laughing at a bloke trying to walk in heels, it’s about using the power of transformation to access a new side to some of our favourite people.”

The one-off episode is part of Network 10’s Pilot Showcase but Act says if you want more, “please stream it & talk about it online so the [Network 10] gatekeepers can’t resist!”

Act will also be a judge on an upcoming UK show, Queens For The Night, which is set to premiere later this year on ITV.

Contestants will be judged on singing, dancing, lip-syncing, impression, comedy, and of course drag with the studio audience voting for the winner. 

Act is currently hosting One Plus One on ABC.

Courtney’s Closet will be available to stream from July 4 on Ten Play.
