Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, World of Wonder Co-Founders said: “We firmly believe in charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent and can’t wait to welcome these 10 talented queens into the Drag Race family. It’s fantastic to work with RTL and Vincent TV on launching a Dutch version of the franchise, but it’s also a privilege to be able to bring this brilliant new series to an international audience too, via our own SVoD Platform WOW Presents Plus. We know fans won’t be disappointed.”
Ellen van den Berghe, Head of programming of RTL’s Videoland: “This outstanding, urgent and groundbreaking Emmy Award-winning program fits seamlessly into the values and ambition of Videoland. We are very proud we have achieved to commission a Dutch version of Drag Race as we know there are a lot of Drag Race-fans in Holland. But mostly we are proud we can show our subscribers the art and diversity of the program and the Dutch queens. Together with the producer Vincent TV and the support of World of Wonder we can’t wait to make a success of Drag Race Holland.”
Vincent ter Voert, founder and executive producer of Drag Race Holland, adds: “After more than five years of developing this great format for the Dutch market, we believe finally the time is right for Drag Race Holland! Our Dutch queens have been patiently waiting for a local broadcaster to acknowledge the urgency and beauty of this very successful entertainment show. We are thankful to Videoland to underline the importance of diversity and bring this show to a very wide audience.”
