The streaming platform announced today that mc Dashaun Wesley along with judges Leiomy Maldonado, Jameela Jamil, Law Roach and Megan Thee Stallion will be returning to serve realness for Legendary Season 2, which moves to the west coast in Los Angeles. The final two episodes of season one are now available to stream on HBO Max.
“Legendary was an HBO Max, day one premiere. We knew we had something special and are proud that critics and audiences alike have embraced the series. Bringing this incredible world back for a second season furthers our commitment to high quality, compelling storytelling,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer at HBO Max, President, TNT, TBS and truTV.
“Season one was an inspirational and educational journey into the exuberant world of ballroom. This series is truly sensational and we are humbled by the back stories of the contestants that make up the heart of the show, our illustrious MC Dashaun and judges panel, and the fantastic team at Scout,” added Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max “
“Scout is thrilled and honored that our friends at HBO MAX have picked up Legendary for a second season. We’re also excited to have our amazing judges and Legendary MC Dashaun Wesley returning to the stage for season 2. Our goal is to continue showcasing the exuberant and dynamic world of ballroom through the omnicultural stories of its most talented houses,” said Rob Eric, Scout Productions’ Chief Creative Officer and executive producer.
In this series highlighting modern day ball culture, “Houses” battle in fashion and dance challenges including vogueing for the chance to snatch the legendary trophy and win a cash prize. Voguing is a competitive style of modern dance featuring high fashion and choreography based on poses struck by models.
Legendary features eight voguing houses, each comprised of five performers and a leader—the house “parent.” The teams compete in an arcing competition that documents a themed ball every episode from start to finish giving full access to the behind the scenes action.
From Scout Productions, Emmy award winners David Collins (Queer Eye), Rob Eric (Queer Eye) and Michael Williams (Queer Eye) serve as executive producers. Renata Lombardo and Shant Tutunjian also serve as executive producers.
Class Action Park is based on the world’s most dangerous water park, Action Park, that had its heyday in the ’80s and ’90s and was a staple for anyone who grew up in New Jersey. There have been many famous Action Park “alumni” that have shared their experiences over the years, inspiring feature films, scripted series, and most recently a tell-all book written by the son of the genius madman that founded the park.
For the first time, fans new and old will be able to experience first-hand the insanity of this dangerous water park via real-life footage and testimonials.
“Class Action Park brings feelings of nostalgia even if you didn’t grow up going to this infamous New Jersey amusement park,” said Aubrey. “The insane stories of lawlessness and injury are an unbelievably wild ride.”
Class Action Park is the first-ever feature-length documentary to explore the legend, legacy, and truth behind a place that long ago entered the realm of myth. To some, New Jersey’s infamous Action Park was the most spectacularly fun amusement park on Earth: A place where unruly 1980s teenagers were given free rein to go gonzo on strange contraptions that seemed to violate the laws of common sense (and perhaps physics). To others, it was an ill-conceived death trap.
One thing is sure: It’s the type of place that will never exist again. Shirking the trappings of nostalgia, the film uses investigative journalism, newly unearthed and never-before-seen documents and recordings, original animations, and interviews with the people who lived it to reveal the true story for the first time. The documentary features an original score by The Holladay Brothers.
Class Action Park is produced and directed by Chris Charles Scott & Seth Porges. Authentic Talent & Literary Management’s Liz DeCesare executive produced.
