‘“The Horror of Dolores Roach”. Watch on Prime Video.
The popular podcast series is getting a television makeover as The Horror of Dolores Roach hits Prime Video on Thursday (July 6) at 8 p.m. ET. The series was originally written by Aaron Mark as a one-woman play with it debuting in 2016 in the form of a podcast. Now, fans and newcomers to the series will be able to watch the audio come to life on screen.
Starring Justine Machado, the drama follows her character, Dolores Roach, who is recently released from prison after 16 years. She returns to Washington Heights only to find the New York City neighborhood gentrified, her family long gone and boyfriend missing. After reuniting with an old stoner friend, Luis (Alejandro Hernandez), he allows her to live and work as a masseuse under his empanada shop, but when her stability is threatened, her and Luis use some Sweeney Todd-inspired methods to survive.
