RuPaul knows a little something about television, as his popular reality competition series, RuPaul’s  Drag Race, has already won the LGBT icon an Emmy. Now, it appears he’ll be entering the daytime space, as he has a test talk show lined up with Telepictures, according to Variety.

The show is set for a fall 2019 debut and will be filmed in front of a live audience. Ru is set to bring his unique, positive and aspirational point of view to the format, interviewing celebrities, giving beauty and glam tips, playing games, and spilling the tea on our favorite pop culture moments.

Frequent collaborator Michelle Visage is also expected to play a major role in the show, though her exact position has yet to be revealed. Ru also has other television projects in the works, including a comedy series entitled, AJ and the Queen. Hulu is also developing a series based on his life.

Telepictures is also behind talk show giants like The Real and Ellen.
