“American Horror Story” Season 11 Will Premiere This Fall on FX


Amazon Studios recently greenlit “The Horror of Dolores Roach, based on the hit Gimlet podcast, and Variety reports that music legend Cyndi Lauper has joined the cast.

Lauper has signed on for a “recurring guest role,” Variety indicates.

The website goes on to detail, “Lauper will play Ruthie, a Broadway theatre usher who moonlights as a private investigator and stirs up trouble for Dolores Roach.”

Marc Maron (GLOW), Jean Yoon (Kim’s Convenience), Judy Reyes (SuccessionBetter Things), and Jeffery Self (Search Party) have all signed on for recurring roles in the series.

Justina Machado (The Purge: Anarchy) will star in the title role, with the cast for the Amazon Prime series also including Alejandro HernandezKita Updike, and K. Todd Freeman.

“The eight-episode, half-hour series is a contemporary Sweeney Todd-inspired tale; 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 is 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.”

Aaron Mark and Dara Resnik will serve as co-showrunners and executive produce the series, alongside Gloria Calderón Kellett and Roxann Dawson, who directed the pilot.

Executive producers also include Daphne Rubin-Vega; Jason Blum, Chris McCumber and Jeremy Gold for Blumhouse Television; Dawn Ostroff, Mimi O’Donnell and Justin McGoldrick for Spotify Studios, alongside Gloria Calderón Kellett for GloNation Studios.
