WOW Presents Plus
See: Category:Web Series for all the WOW Presents Plus originals.
In 2018, World of Wonder launched a streaming service called WOW Presents Plus. The service contains a multitude of original series, mostly starring alumni from the Drag Race franchise, and is also the main international distributor in some region for RuPaul's Drag Race, RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, and international incarnations of the franchises. A WOW Presents Plus original series serves as the prize for the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race UK in lieu of a cash prize, since BBC is not allowed to give out money to contestants on game shows.
