Development News - August 2, 2021

Hulu's Olga Dies Dreaming.

  • Aubrey Plaza will play the lead role in the drama pilot written by Xochitl Gonzalez. She previously starred for seven seasons in NBC's Parks and Recreation and three seasons in FX's Legion. She next stars in and executive produces FXX's upcoming animated comedy Little Demon.
  • She will play Olga Acevedo, 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.
