In eight hour-long episodes of the forthcoming series Trixie Motel coming in 2022 to the streaming service Discovery+ Trixie Mattel faces the reality of having invested her life savings into a rundown motel in super-trendy Palm Springs, California. But with help from her boyfriend and co-owner, David, among other fabulous helpers, she takes 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."

Trixie Motel is produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment.
