The fall slate of new and returning fiction podcasts has been released by Gimlet
, led by cyber-thriller Motherhacker, in which a single mother (Carrie Coon
) journeys through the dark web.
Starting in October, Gimlet will be releasing one fiction series a month through the end of the year, including its first scripted renewals since Homecoming
season 2. Streamer Spotify
bought Gimlet Media
and fellow podcasting company Anchor
earlier this year for a reported $340 million. The newly announced slate reflects a ramping up of the production pace.
Besides Motherhacker, Gimlet will also unveil The Horror of Dolores Roach
for a second season, wherein listeners can hear the latest from Roach (Daphne Rubin-Vega
) and her life underground. Also back is The Two Princes, with an update on Prince Rupert and Prince Amir’s love story and the adventures they find along the way.
Gimlet’s executive producer for scripted fiction is Mimi O’Donnell.
