Another horror podcast is making the jump to TV. The hit Gimlet podcast series The Horror of Dolores Roach will officially get a series adaptation at Amazon Studios.

Described as a “Sweeney Todd” type tale, the series explores a macabre urban legend of love, betrayal, weed, gentrification, cannibalism, and survival of the fittest. Dolores Roach is released from prison after 16 years and returns to a severely 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, and in the face of unexpected professional success, Dolores and Luis become dangerously symbiotic, and Luis must unleash his own peculiar predilections. 

Justina Machado will take on the lead role of Dolores. Aaron Mark, who wrote and directed the original podcast, will serve as co-showrunner and executive producer with Dara Resnik, Gloria Calderón Kellett, and Roxann Dawson, who directed the pilot. 

“After eight years living with the indomitable Dolores Roach in multiple forms, I could not be more thrilled to be bringing her to life on television with this powerhouse team,” said Mark.

The eight-episode half-hour series represents a joint venture between Spotify’s Gimlet, Blumhouse Television, and GloNation Studios.

Dolores Roach is exactly the type of fresh, bold, and completely unique storytelling that Blumhouse is passionate about making. Audiences will soon see why this modern-day horror story with a darkly humorous twist is just so special,” said Chris McCumber, president of Blumhouse Television.

The Horror of Dolores Roach will premiere exclusively on Prime Video.
