Deadline – Aubrey Plaza is set to star as the title character in and produce Olga Dies Dreaming, Hulu’s one-hour drama pilot based on the novel by Xochitl Gonzalez.

Written by Gonzalez and to be directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Olga Dies Dreaming is the story of a Nuyorican brother and sister from a gentrifying Sunset Park in Brooklyn who are reckoning with their absent, politically radical mother and their glittering careers among New York City’s elite in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Plaza’s Olga Acevedo is 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. Still, she can’t shake the feeling that the important people she knows don’t see her as their equals and this nagging sense that her success is an illusion always leaves her wanting more.

The film will be produced Bill Block for Miramax, which is also fully financing the film. Ivan Atkinson also serves as producer. CAA Media Finance arranged financing and brokered the US, UK, and Ireland distribution deal. […]
