The 10-episode series is set in Tulsa, Oklahoma and follows the story of Vicki Ellis, the most renowned (and ruthless) pageant coach in the state, and the hapless Samantha Stone who hopes Vicki can mold her into worthwhile contender for the title of Miss America. Vicki is desperately sought after by young women competing to be Miss America for one reason; she can turn any girl into a winner. But when she gets paired with the beautiful but unpolished Samantha, Vicki’s entire reputation might be at stake.

The comedy series also stars Judith Light, Victoria Justice, Jennifer Westfeldt, Isabelle Amara, Teagle Bougere, Molly Price, Megan West and Rana Roy. Queen America is created, written, and executive produced by Meaghan Oppenheimer (Fear the Walking Dead). Made Up Stories’ Bruna Papandrea and Casey Haver, and Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady and Suzan Bymel will also executive produce alongside Janice Williams.
