Described as a "riotous, format-busting, fourth-wall-breaking, unapologetic sendup" of traditional competition shows, Drag Me to Dinner will pit two teams of drag artists against each other to throw the best dinner party, with each week having a unique theme introduced by Burtka, Harris' husband and fellow show producer. After the queens compete in distinct categories — including Food & Drink, Design & Decor, and Entertainment & Overall Vibe — the trio of judges will deliberate and declare one the winner, who will walk away with the prize: the Glorious Golden Grater. Drag Me to Dinner premieres Wednesday, May 31 on Hulu.
