Making Moves: ‘Pose’ Star Mj Rodriguez Joins Maya Rudolph in New Apple Comedy Series

Posted May 10, 2021

Pose‘ may be wrapping up its final season, but that doesn’t mean this is the last we will see and hear of the cast.

Mj Rodriguez who stars in the series as mother Blanca, has just landed her next gig and its something that might surprise fans. The actress will join Maya Rudolph in a new comedy series set to air on Apple TV.

Michaela Jaé “Mj” Rodriguez will star opposite Maya Rudolph in an upcoming Apple comedy series that hails from Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard, Variety has learned.

The series was ordered at Apple in March. It follows Molly (Rudolph), a woman whose seemingly perfect life is upended after her husband leaves her with nothing but 87 billion dollars. Rodriguez will play Sofia, the hard-working executive director of the non-profit funded by her absentee billionaire boss, Molly.

Rodriguez is best known for her role as Blanca in the Emmy-winning FX drama series “Pose,” which recently debuted its third and final season. Her other TV credits include “Nurse Jackie” and “Luke Cage,” while she has also starred in films such as “Adam” and “Saturday Church.” She recently starred as Audrey in the Pasadena Playhouse’s production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”

Yang and Hubbard created the Apple series, which has the working title “Loot,” and will serve as executive producers. Rudolph will executive produce in addition to starring under her Animal Pictures banner. Natasha Lyonne and Danielle Renfrew Behrens of Animal Pictures will also executive produce, as will Dave Becky of 3 Arts. Universal Television is the studio. Both Yang and Hubbard are under overall deals at UTV.
