The series, which is being showrun by Home Before Dark co-creator Dara Resnik, is a Sweeney Todd-inspired tale of Eat or Be Eaten, an urban legend of love, betrayal, weed, gentrification, cannibalism and survival of the fittest. The story will follow the titular character as she returns to a New York City neighborhood that has changed drastically in the sixteen years she’s been locked up in prison, with her boyfriend missing and her family long gone. The only connection Dolores has is her old stoner friend Luis, who give her room and board and give massages for cash in the basement apartment under his empanada shop, but the promise of stability is threatened and Dolores is driven to extremes to survive, including strangling a number of clients.

Resnik is set to develop the series alongside podcast creator Aaron Mark, who signed a first-look deal with Blumhosue, which won the rights to adapt the podcast last year in a heated bidding war. The podcast itself is based on Mark’s one-woman play Empanada Loca which starred Daphne Rubin-Vega, a breakout star of Broadway’s Rent.

Mark is penning the script for the series from his podcast script along with Rubin-Vega, with Gimlet Pictures’ Chris Giliberti and Justin McGoldrick set to executive produce the series alongside Jason Blum, Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold of Blumhouse Television.
