    Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelous, the dazzlingly-toothed daytime TV power couple, are partnering with Hulu to bring Silvia Morneo-Garcia’s bestselling horror thriller novel Mexican Gothic to the small screen.

    Published last month to rave reviews, and recommended by Ripa to her 2.8 million Instagram followers just last week, Mexican Gothic follows Noemí Taboada, “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. Noemí seeks to unveil 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.”

    “I am excited to see the novel come to life and to meet the talented, diverse crew and cast members that will take us on this journey,” Moreno-Garcia said.

    Let the speculation as to who will land the plum central role of Noemí commence.
