In this competition series, voguing teams — known in the world of underground ballroom as “houses” — will compete in a series of balls and showcases to see who will be crowned “legendary.” Celebrity judges will include Jameela Jamil and Megan Thee Stallion.

On the Record

On the Record centers around music executive Drew Dixon as she tells her story about accusing Russell Simmons of sexual assault in the wake of #MeToo.


As part of HBO Max’s dedication to providing family-oriented content, YouTuber Lauren Riihimaki will host this kids’ competition series that will put their crafting skills to the test.
