To kick off Pride Month, HBO Max announced (and began shooting) its glitzy new competition show: Legendary. Shining a light on the ballroom community, the series matches eight equally-talented ‘houses’ against one another in a series of battles that include voguing and a variety of other dance categories.
Legendary is the first competition show by a major television network based on the ballroom community. Different houses are expected to “compete in unbelievable balls and showcase sickening fashion” to gain ground and eventually walk away with the prize. Dashaun Wesley, known to many as Dashaun Lanvin, will assume the MC role while Leiomy Maldonado aka Amazon Leiomy, will be a judge. Both dancers had their first major breaks into the mainstream appearing on America’s Best Dance Crew a decade ago. The judging panel is rounded out by Megan Thee Stallion, Jamil, and stylist Law Roach.
The show is available as of May 27th via HBO Max, along with Sex and the City, The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, The Wizard of Oz and more.
