HBO Max Greenlights Unscripted Voguing, Design Competition Shows From Queer Eye & Amazing Race Producers
HBO Max is making its first foray into unscripted programming with orders for two new series — voguing series Legendary and design competition show The Greatest Space (working title), from the producers behind Queer Eye and The Amazing Race. Both are set to launch on WarnerMedias upcoming streaming service which debuts in spring 2020.

Voguing is a competitive style of modern dance featuring over-the-top fashion and choreography based on poses struck by models on a catwalk. Legendary will feature 10 voguing “houses,” each comprised of five performers and a leader – the house “parent.” The teams rotate in a round-robin format, and each episode documents a themed ball from start to finish.
The Greatest Space (wt), from Scout and The Amazing Race producers, is a 10-episode design competition show that will feature interior designers traveling around the world to transform an eclectic mix of empty rooms into spectacular spaces.
