Aubrey Plaza is set to star in the Hulu drama pilot “Olga Dies Dreaming,” based on the upcoming book of the same name by Xóchitl Gonzalez. Gonzalez is also writing and executive producing the pilot, and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will direct and executive produce.
Olga Dies Dreaming tells the story of a Nuyorican brother and sister (Plaza) 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.
Plaza will star in the titular role as Olga, a renowned wedding planner whose surface successes mask a darker interior. For Olga, the pursuit of perfection has become a compulsive survival mechanism as she tries to climb as far from her past as she can.
