Based on the Gimlet podcast of the same name, The Horror of Dolores Roach is coming to us from Blumhouse Television, Gimlet, and GloNation Studios. The show will tell the following story: After serving a 16-year prison sentence, the title character (Machado) returns to a gentrified Washington Heights with $200 and the clothes on her back. Her boyfriend missing, her family long gone, Dolores reunites with an old stoner buddy, Luis, who gives her room and board and lets her give massages for cash in the basement under his dilapidated storefront, Empanada Loca, the only remnant of her former life. When the promise of her newfound stability is quickly threatened, “Magic Hands Dolores” is driven to shocking extremes to survive.
The series stars Justina Machado (One Day at a Time), Alejandro Hernandez (Gotham), Kita Updike (The Misandrists), K. Todd Freeman (Grosse Pointe Blank), Jean Yoon (Kim’s Convenience), Judy Reyes (Succession, Better Things), Jeffery Self (Search Party), comedian / podcaster Marc Maron (GLOW), and singer Cyndi Lauper.
The Horror of Dolores Roach was created by Aaron Mark, who first brought the story into the world as a one-woman play starring Daphne Rubin-Vega. Rubin-Vega returned to the title role for the podcast, which Mark wrote and directed. Now Mark is serving as showrunner on the Amazon series, alongside Dara Resnik.Mark, Resnik, and Rubin-Vega are executive producers on the series, as are Gloria Calderón Kellett, Blumhouse TV’s Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, and Jeremy Gold, Spotify’s Dawn Ostroff, Mimi O’Donnell, and Justin McGoldrick, and pilot director Roxann Dawson.
The series is “a contemporary Sweeney Todd-inspired tale of eat or be eaten” that’s described as being “a macabre urban legend of love, betrayal, weed, gentrification, cannibalism, and survival of the fittest.”
