Gimlet, the podcast company that brought listeners Homecoming, has recruited a bevy of Broadway stars to lend their vocal talents for the fall season.

Deadline reports the fall season will kick off in October with one series released per month through the end of 2019. All three series will be available for free on Spotify, which purchased Gimlet earlier this year.

First up is the second season of The Horror of Dolores Roach, starring upcoming In the Heights star and Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent), alongside reunited Orange Is the New Black stars Lea DeLaria and Dascha Polanca.

The podcast follows a single mom as she taps into the dark web to find a hacker who stole her money. Tony winner Alan Cumming (Cabaret) and Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea) also star.

Rounding out the season in December are Broadway alum Noah Galvin (Waitress) and Tony winner Ari’el Stachel (The Band’s Visit) returning as The Two Princes for a second season. The queer-themed podcast will feature fellow Tony winner Ali Stoker (Oklahoma!) and Emmy winners Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Matthew Rhys (The Americans).

The Horror of Dolores Roach
Written and directed by Aaron Mark
Cast: Daphne Rubin Vega, Donnell Rawlings, Amy Ryan, Lea DeLaria, Everett Quinton, Dascha Polanco, Josh Hamilton, Ilana Levine, and Alfredo Narciso.

With blood on her hands, the infamous Dolores Roach has fled the recent shocking destruction in Washington Heights and gone into hiding deep under New York City in an abandoned subway tunnel. But she’s not alone underground, and her dark night of the soul is interrupted by the similarly self-exiled tunnel-dwellers, an extremist faction of those known as the Mole People, whose space she’s invaded. Facing re-incarceration back above ground, but pushed to the limits of shame, paranoia, lust, hunger, and depraved entrepreneurialism below it, Dolores is the outcast of the outcasts again – until she takes her survival in the tunnels into her own Magic Hands.
