Watch the first trailer for Sasha Velour’s new Quibi series Nightgowns

Sasha Velour has released the first teaser for her upcoming Quibi series, Nightgowns.

The eight-episode docu-series, which is directed by the incomparable Sophie Muller, will follow Sasha and the members of their team as they craft a legendary lip-sync performance, all while we go behind-the-scenes of their creative process.

Each episode “draws us to one performer in particular, and reveals their daily life, process, and backstory, culminating in a 2-3 minute made-for-mobile visual expression of their live number, directed by Muller”.

Sasha will executive produce the series alongside Oscar-nominated producers at The Documentary Group.

When we spoke to Sasha, she said she wanted to represent the “diversity of what drag is” and provide a platform to drag artists who aren’t always welcome in drag spaces or competitions, such as drag kings and trans and AFAB performers.

“I’m always trying to shift it to other people, let’s look at the whole community,” she told us. “The phenomenon is really the community, it’s not these exceptional individuals. The phenomenon is also this amazing history of drag.”

The legendary performer, who won the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, also revealed that each episode will be under 10 minutes, which she calls “effective” because there’s “no padding, it’s just all really to the point and exciting”.
