New show, 'House on Fire' centers on NYC ballroom scene

Today, it was revealed through Deadline that a new reality series is coming to their platform WOW Presents+. 

The producers of Drag Race announced the new series called House on Fire. The show centers around the ballroom scene. The new series is yet to get a release window revealed.

This will all be told through the House of Miyake-Mugler and its two heads Yusef Mugler and Exotic Mugler as they “juggle the pressures of competition and mentoring their talented cohort,” according to a press release.

Fans might remember the House of Miyake-Mugler as the winner of the second season of Legendary, the ballroom competition show that previously aired on Max before being canceled in 2022. 

“It is something we feel absolute confidence that our audience is going to eat up,” said World of Wonder co-founder, Randy Barbato. 

“It’s anchored in ballroom culture, which is such an inspiration for so much of drag, so much of the language of it is the language of drag, and the show has incredibly compelling characters with huge hearts.”

According to producers, the show was largely inspired by the legendary documentary Paris Is Burning. The 1990 movie unearthed an underworld of New York culture in which the LGBTQIA+ community had a safe space to express themselves fully. 

World of Wonder has yet to announce an official release date, but we hope for more details soon.
