Legendary Trailer Released for HBO Max’s New Competition Series
HBO Max as released the official trailer for their upcoming competition series Legendary, pulling directly from the underground ballroom community where voguing teams (aka “houses”) must compete in unbelievable balls and showcase sickening fashion in order to achieve “legendary” status. You can check out the trailer below!
In this series highlighting modern-day ball culture, divas battle on teams called “Houses” in fashion and dance challenges including vogueing for the chance to snatch the legendary trophy and win a cash prize. Voguing is a competitive style of modern dance featuring high fashion and choreography based on poses struck by models. Legendary features eight voguing houses, each comprised of five performers and a leader—the house “parent.” The teams rotate in a round-robin format that documents a themed ball every episode from start to finish giving full access to the behind the scenes action.
The cast includes MC Dashaun Wesley and DJ MikeQ as well as celebrity judges Law Roach, Jameela Jamil, Leiomy Maldonado, and Megan Thee Stallion.
From Scout Productions, Emmy Award winners David Collins (Queer Eye), Rob Eric (Queer Eye), and Michael Williams (Queer Eye) serve as executive producers. Jane Mun (People’s Choice Awards, MTV Music Awards, America’s Best Dance Crew), and Josh Greenberg (Lip Sync Battle, Sunday Best, America’s Best Dance Crew) serve as executive producers and showrunners.
The series will premiere on Wednesday, May 27 on HBO Max.
