Fox has ordered the drama series “The Cleaning Lady” for the 2021-2022 broadcast season.
The one-hour show was originally ordered to pilot last year, but production was delayed by the pandemic. Elodie Yung stars as Thony, a whip-smart doctor who comes to the U.S. for a medical treatment to save her ailing son. But when the system fails and pushes her into hiding, she refuses to be beaten down and marginalized. Instead, she becomes a cleaning lady for the mob and starts playing the game by her own rules.

“The Cleaning Lady” is based on the Argentinian series ““La Chica Que Limpia.” Along with Yung, the show stars Adam Canto in the role of Arman, Martha Millan in the role of Fiona, and twins Sebastien and Valentino LaSalle, who will share the role of Luca.
Miranda Kwok serves as writer and executive producer, with Melissa Carter executive producing and serving as showrunner. Shay Mitchell also executive produces via Amore & Vita Productions, Inc., with Rose Marie Vega and Paola Suarez also executive producing. Michael Offer directed and executive produced the pilot. Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment produce.
“The Cleaning Lady” is Fox’s latest pickup for the upcoming season. Last week, the network ordered the dramedy series “The Big Leap,” about a group of strangers that join a reality dance show. Fox has also ordered an animated comedy set in ancient Greece from Dan Harmon, the drama “Our Kind of People” from Karin Gist and Lee Daniels, and the mockumentary series “This County.”
