Justina Machado to star in Amazon's The Horror of Dolores Roach pilot

The One Day at a Time alum will lead the pilot based on the podcast of the same name. In The Horror of Dolores Roach, Machado's "Magic Hands” Dolores Roach "is released from prison after 16 years and returns to a severely-gentrified Washington Heights with $200 and the clothes on her back," per Variety. "Her boyfriend missing, her family long gone, her apartment now occupied by strangers, Dolores finds respite in the dilapidated storefront Empanada Loca around the corner, the only remnant of her former life."
