Queen America is an upcoming dark comedy web series created by Meaghan Oppenheimer set against the backdrop of the pageant world. It stars Oscar winner Catherine Zeta Jones as a ruthless pageant coach.
Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the show follows Vicki Ellis (Jones), the most renowned (and ruthless) pageant coach in the state, and the hapless Samantha Stone (Belle Shouse) who hopes Vicki can mold her into worthwhile contender for the title of Miss America. Additional cast includes Judith Light, Jennifer Westfeldt, Victoria Justice, Teagle Bougere, Rana Roy, Isabella Amara, Molly Price and Megan West.
As a fan of Miss Congeniality, Drop Dead Gorgeous and avid watcher of Miss Universe, naturally this upcoming series is totally up my alley. Plus, I love me some Catherine Zeta Jones. And based on the trailer, she is fantastic in this role. This is guilty pleasure viewing for damn sure.
Queen America premieres on November 21 on Facebook’s video-on-demand service, Facebook Watch. Check out the full trailer below.
