Drag Legend Poppy Fields Stars in New Original Comedy Series WHATTA LARK
The new original comedy series WHATTA LARK discovers that if you're lucky, true friendship can be a real drag (queen). Releasing on the queer-centric platform Revry.TV on December 15th, this 10-episode comedy series was created by voice-over veteran/actress Tara Platt (The Call, League of Legends), who also stars alongside Christopher Graham, aka real-life Drag legend Poppy Fields.
WHATTA LARK delivers a heartfelt and hysterical glimpse into the world of women and men who perform as women. When Megan (Platt), a children's book author, is suddenly thrust into the life-altering discussion of whether or not to have kids, she turns to the internet for answers. What she accidentally stumbles upon is a voice of reason and joy in Whatta Lark (Graham), a fabulous drag queen and drag "Mother". The two new confidantes forge an UNEXPECTED friendship, exploring the complex issues of parenthood, life choices, sexuality and belonging with unusual perspectives and humor.
Platt shares, "I believe the heartfelt storylines of Whatta Lark appeal to a very wide audience, from women searching for their path in life, to members of the LGBTQ community, to people who enjoy character driven comedy. Our show explores life issues with a spoonful of sugar, handfuls of glitter, and the world's longest fake eyelashes to help the medicine go down."
To assist, Platt brought in a powerhouse team including Emmy-nominated producer and Head of Production at Canvas Media Studios Allison Vanore; Palm Springs Film Fest feature headlining director America Young; proven television sitcom writer Danielle Evenson; and voice-over superstar/actor, Platt's husband and co-producer, Yuri Lowenthal (Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Ben 10); with a featured appearance by The Boulet Brother's Dragula Season 1 winner Antonio Yee.
Platt is thrilled to be unleashing her creative vision, having used an extremely ethnically and gender diverse team to get it done. Platt adds, "This is one of the things I am most proud of. Having such a diverse group of talents all working together to share our particular tale of a very human experience was not only inspiring, but life changing."
