Cyndi Lauper is set to appear in the upcoming Amazon series “The Horror of Dolores Roach.”
Lauper will appear alongside previously announced lead Justina Machado as well as cast members Alejandro Hernandez, Kita Updike, K. Todd Freeman, Marc Maron, Jean Yoon, Judy Reyes, and Jeffery Self.
The series is being produced by Blumhouse Television, Spotify Studios, and GloNation Studios for Amazon.
According to Variety, “In the series, Dolores Roach (Machado) 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 (Hernandez), 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,” the entertainment magazine continued.
Lauper will play Ruthie, a Broadway theatre usher who moonlights as a private investigator and stirs up trouble for Roach.
