MAY 21, 2021 -- Drag superstar Trixie Mattel, who has taken the world by storm with her outrageous sense of humor and vivacious, retro-kitschy style, is venturing into uncharted waters with newly greenlighted discovery+ series, Trixie Motel. In the eight hour-long episodes coming to the streaming service in 2022, Trixie will face the reality of having invested her life savings into a rundown motel in super-trendy Palm Springs, California. However, with help from her boyfriend and co-owner, David, among other fabulous helpers, she will take on the massive renovation. During the series, Trixie and her team will tackle a commercial kitchen, pool area and seven uniquely themed motel rooms to create the ultimate drag paradise.
"Trixie is an entertaining performer, but most people don't associate her with renovation," said Jane Latman, president, HGTV, whose team greenlights home content for discovery+. "We know Trixie will create a fantasy-filled motel makeover with grit, wigs and fun. It'll be a series unlike any we've seen."
"I can't wait to give this run-down motel the facelift it so desperately needs," said Trixie. "With help from my most famous celebrity friends, we're going to create the glossiest drag motel of your wildest fever-dreams."
Fans also are invited to connect with the series across the discovery+ digital platforms at discoveryplus.com and via @discoveryplus and #TrixieMotel on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
