From masseuse to murderer, life happens fast. And you know the old adage… when life hands you a dead body, make empanadas. Check out the trailer for the new Prime Video series The Horror of Dolores Roach below.

Here’s the official synopsis from Prime Video:

The Horror of Dolores Roach is a contemporary Sweeney Todd-inspired urban legend of love, betrayal, weed, cannibalism, and survival of the fittest. Dolores Roach (Justina Machado) is released after an unjust 16-year prison sentence, and she returns to a gentrified Washington Heights. Dolores reunites with an old stoner friend, Luis (Alejandro Hernandez), who lets her live and work as a masseuse in the basement under his empanada shop. When the promise of her newfound stability is quickly threatened, “Magic Hands” Dolores is driven to shocking extremes to survive.

The show stars Machado, Hernandez, Kita Updike, and K. Todd Freeman.

The TV series is based on the hit Spotify podcast series of the same name. The podcast itself draws from Aaron Mark’s original one-woman play, Empanada Loca. Mark created, wrote, and directed the podcast, and also wrote the Prime Video series pilot. Mark serves as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside Dara Resnik. 

Other executive producers on The Horror of Dolores Roach include Daphne Rubin-Vega; Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie for Blumhouse Television; Dawn Ostroff, Mimi O’Donnell, and Justin McGoldrick for Spotify; Gloria Calderón Kellett for GloNation Studios; and Roxann Dawson, who directed the pilot.

The Horror of Dolores Roach will include 8 episodes. The series premieres exclusively on Prime Video July 7.
