Adaptation Of Horror Novel ‘Mexican Gothic’ Heads To Hulu

Hulu this week continued to strengthen its presence in the horror arena by landing an upcoming adaptation of a new novel, Mexican Gothic.

The new show–which has no production or casting details at this time–will be developed by Milojo Productions (owned by television personalities Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos) and ABC Signature, as reported by Deadline.

The horror/fantasy series will be based on the best-selling novel by Silvia Moreno-Garcia that was published by Del Rey this June.

Ripa–of early-morning talk show fame–recently praised the book on her Instagram page, calling the novel “sublime horror for your summer reading. So good, I bought the hard copy and the download to read in the dark.”

Ripa added in a statement that her company feels “like we hit the literary jackpot, and cannot wait to bring Silvia’s gorgeous writing to life–together with Hulu.”

Moreno-Garcia also expressed her enthusiasm over the project. “I am so excited to see the novel come to life,” she said, “and to meet the talented, diverse crew and cast members that will take us on this journey.”

The novel tells the story of Noemi Taboada, described as a “young socialite who travels to the Mexican countryside and the mountains of Hidalgo in hopes of rescuing her cousin, who has recently married into a reclusive mining family, after receiving a frantic letter in the mail.”

Noemi looks to unearth the family’s “violent and menacing secrets, but her confidence is quickly threatened, and there may be no escaping the walls of her strange, new home.”

The author will serve as executive producer for the TV adaptation, along with Milojo’s Ripa, Consuelos and Albert Bianchini. Michael Halpern is the director of development for Milojo Productions.

Moreno-Garcia also is the best-selling author of Certain Dark Things and Untamed Shore, as well as the editor of the World Fantasy Award-winning She Walks in Shadows.
