Cover Girl is a Canadian French language television sitcom, which aired on Radio-Canada in 2005.[1] Created and written by Richard Blaimert, the series revolved around three drag queens sharing ownership of Cover Girl, a gay nightclub in downtown Montreal.[1]

The series premiered in the winter of the 2004-05 television season, and was renewed for a second season which aired in fall 2005, for a total of 26 episodes. One of Quebec's most noted drag queens, Mado Lamotte, criticized the show as unrealistic.[2]

The series garnered several Gemeaux Award nominations in 2006, including Best Comedy Series and nods for René Richard Cyr and Vincent Bolduc as Best Actor in a Comedy Series.[3]
