Things are about to get messy. FOX‘s The cleaning lady Season 1 finally premiered in January, giving crime drama fans a new show to rave about. Viewers won’t want to fall behind on this exciting saga – here’s all you need to know The cleaning ladynew episodes.
What is the cleaning lady talking about?
With Elodie Yung, The cleaning lady follows a Cambodian doctor named Thony De La Rosa, who moves to the United States to seek treatment for the fatal immunodeficiency disorder of his 5-year-old son, Luca. However, Thony’s visa expires, trapping her in Las Vegas with Luca, Thony Fiona’s sister-in-law (Martha Millan) and Fiona’s children.
Thony keeps a low profile while working for a cleaning company alongside Fiona. One night, her world changes when she accidentally witnesses a murder among a dangerous crowd. In order to save his own life, Thony offers to clean up the mess. Mafia boss Arman Morales (Adan Canto) hires Thony to continue cleaning up his crimes in exchange for his protection and helping Luca get the care he needs.
The cleaning lady is based on the Argentinian show La Chica Que Limpia. The show’s writer, Miranda Kwok, said South China Morning Post that Thony’s trip intrigued him.
“What was exciting to me was the story of an undocumented immigrant making her the underdog and the unlikely hero,” Kwok said. “We bring a lot of interesting topics that are very relevant for today. We also adapted her as a doctor who cannot practice, so she is forced to work under the table as a cleaning lady. It’s an exciting drama… which we use as a Trojan horse to address these interesting questions.
