Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel Check Out the BRADY BUNCH House at TRIXIE MOTEL
Tune in to the new episode of Trixie Motel, launching Friday, June 24 as they experience The Brady House with Property Brother Jonathan Scott and NEW GIRL actor/musician Zooey Deschanel.
Glamorous drag superstar Trixie Mattel will expand her outrageously fun empire in the hospitality industry, erecting the “most gagged and iconic motel ever” in her new discovery series + Trixie Motel.
Available to stream from Friday, June 3, the eight-episode series will follow Trixie, her partner and co-owner, David Silver, and her team as they tackle the massive overhaul of a dilapidated mid-century motel in Palm Springs, California.
After spending nearly two million dollars buying the dilapidated property, Trixie and David will recruit a host of spectacular helpers to complete the project in time to kick off Pride Month with an extravagant grand opening.
To help her with this epic endeavour, Trixie enlists the “free labor” of friends, including hospitality mogul Lisa Vanderpump, comedian Nicole Byer, actor and musician Zooey Deschanel, property brother Jonathan Scott and drag queen/partner in crime Katya. Other famous friends lend a hand during the season, including award-winning actor Leslie Jordan, musician and model Iggy Azalea, actor and TV host Jonathan Bennett and musician Belinda Carlisle.
“When I first walked into the dark, dingy motel, I was disgusted, horrified, and just wanted to bring a match to the place,” Trixie said. “But then I thought about how a little paint and glitter can turn a 32-year-old bald man from Wisconsin into a Hollywood darling, and I knew that with our talented team and strategic reconstructive surgery, we could turn this dump into a dazzling one!”
Dealing with the renovation, Trixie will visit the motel, which she only saw online, and get a shocking reality check. The property will need a complete facelift, including janky guest rooms with decades-old shag carpets and crisp wood paneling; faulty air conditioning and electrical wiring; as well as the crumbling pool and disastrous landscaping.
Parasol in hand, Trixie will welcome Lisa Vanderpump with open arms, hoping for sage business advice and an inspiring shopping spree to kick off the renovation. Throughout the season, Trixie and her team push the boundaries of their imagination to create a motel featuring seven uniquely themed rooms, a spectacular pool, lobby and bar that will inspire guests to feel their Palm Springs fantasy.
To spin up the motel, Trixie and David will also bring in fashion and interior designer Dani Dazey, who will bring her elevated maximalist and kitsch style to each space, alongside no-frills Palm Springs project manager David Rios. . Throughout the season, even more of Trixie’s most fabulous friends will join in the process, including: social media star and comedian Brittany Broski; actor and model Gigi Gorgeous; actor Emily Hampshire; and recording artist Orville Peck.
Social media superstars The Old Gays; Nic Scheppard and Jenson Titus of Very Gay Paint; and renowned drag queens Mo Heart, Jaida Essence Hall and alien drag queen Juno Birch will also make appearances. With even more legendary guests at the grand opening party, the season will be full of stars to ring in the fiercest venue Palm Springs has to offer.
Trixie Motel is produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Drew and Jonathan Scott serving as executive producers.
