Gina Rodriguez is celebrating the success of her new ABC comedy “Not Dead Yet” by developing a series adaptation of a popular podcast for Netflix. Deadline reports that the streamer has chosen Princess of South Beach, with Rodriguez set to executive produce via her I Can & I Will Productions banner. A leading role in the series is currently not planned.

“Princess of South Beach,” which has been renewed for a second season, is “iHeart’s My Cultura Network’s most successful title and was nominated for best fiction podcast at the Ambies last year,” the source said. The podcast “follows Maria del Carmen and Gloria, twin sisters separated at birth and raised in completely different ways – one in a convent and the other in luxury. When Gloria dies in a freak accident, Maria del Carmen assumes her identity and discovers that Gloria’s rich family is not as perfect as they seem. The bilingual series pays homage to popular telenovela tropes while adding modern twists.”

Created by Casey Johnson and David Windsor, the supernatural comedy Not Dead Yet is about a woman who gets life advice from the undead when she gets a job writing obituaries.

Rodriguez’s other credits include “Jane the Virgin,” “Someone Great” and “Annihilation.”
