Queer Eye's Tan France reveals new Netflix show with Miranda Sings
21 June 2019, 17:30
Tan France has revealed that he is launching a new global TV show with Netflix which will be announced tomorrow with a huge YouTuber.
UPDATE (June 21): It's now been officially announced that Tan France will be presenting his own makeover show called Dressing Funny, streaming exclusively on Netflix's YouTube channel and Netflix Is A Joke. The show will feature celebrity comedians including Pete Davidson Pete Davidson, Tina Fey, Nick Kroll and YouTuber Miranda Sings. The first episode with John Mulaney dropped today and new episodes will follow every Thursday.
In an interview with PopBuzz (June 20), Tan sat down to discuss his new autobiography, Naturally Tan, the forthcoming season of Queer Eye and his fledgling YouTube channel (if you want to subscribe - which you absolutely should - head over here).
When discussing his channel and asked if he has any collaborations with other YouTubers coming up, he said yes...and then some. Watch the clip above to see Tan spill the tea.
"Yes I have. It's one of the biggest YouTubers. I can't tell you who it is", he revealed.
So who could the mystery YouTuber be? James Charles, perhaps? Tan responded: "...I don't know who that is."
He continued: "It's somebody who I do know and it's announced tomorrow. I have a new show that nobody knows about that will be announced tomorrow. I've never told anybody before. You're the first person I've ever said that too".
Asked whether if it will be in UK or US , Tan said: "It's Global". Is it with Netflix? "Yes it is. That's all I'll tell ya".
As you will know, Tan rose to fame last year on Queer Eye, with fellow Fab 5 castmates Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski and Karamo Brown. Since then, they have gone on to win three Emmy Awards and are set to release their fourth season on July 19th, with a fifth season following next year AND a four-part Japanese special which will be released in 2019.
It was recently announced that Tan will be presenting alongside Alexa Chung on another new Neflix show, Next in Fashion. The programme will pit a group of 18 fashion designers against each other in various challenges to test their creative prowess. The winner will receive a $250,000 prize and the opportunity to debut their collection with luxury fashion online retailer Net-a-Porter.
Assuming Tan wasn't referring to Next In Fashion, as it has already been announced, that means that Tan will be starring in THREE Netflix shows in the space of a year, which is absolutely fine by us. In fact, we might need more shows. You can never have enough Tan in your life.
