20th Television is creating a brand new pilot called “Olga Dies Dreaming”, which is based on the novel by Xochitl Gonzalez. It will be directed by Sundance-winning filmmaker Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

The one-hour drama series has been given a formal pilot order by Hulu and casting has already begun.

“Olga Dies Dreaming” is the story of a Nuyorican brother and sister from a gentrifying Sunset Park, Brooklyn, reckoning with the absent, politically radical mother and their glittering careers among New York City’s elite in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon partnered up with Xochitl Gonzalez after reading her novel in manuscript form.  They’ve gone on to develop the series from the ground up and will executive produce the pilot.

Should the series be given the greenlight, the series will be available on Hulu in the US and with 20th Television creating it, it’s likely to be released as a Star Original on Disney+ internationally.
