Variety reports that UPN has ordered a script that would cast cross-dressing superstar RuPaul as a transvestite nanny in a show that is tentatively titled The Tranny. Big Ticket Entertainment will produce the pilot from writer–executive producer Mort Nathan, whose credits include The Golden Girls, Benson, and the short-lived Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer. RuPaul would star as a transvestite wanna-be entertainer who takes the nanny job to pay the bills. His character would be the most down-to-earth of a wildly dysfunctional family.
