The Cleaning Lady is an American crime drama television series developed by Miranda Kwok, based on the 2017 Argentinian television series La chica que limpia. The series premiered on Fox on January 3, 2022. In April 2022, the series was renewed for a second season, which is set to premiere on September 19, 2022.

Premise

The Cleaning Lady is a drama that centers on Thony De La Rosa, formerly a Cambodian-Filipino medical doctor who is currently working and living in Las Vegas. Her reason for being in the US on an expired visa is her five-year-old son, Luca. Luca has a rare and life-threatening medical disorder for which he needs a cutting-edge bone marrow treatment, which is only available in Las Vegas. Until she gets treatment for her son, Thony makes a living not as a trained doctor but as a cleaning service worker, alongside her sister-in-law, Fiona. After Thony accidentally witnesses a serious crime and is discovered hiding by the perpetrator, Arman Morales, she is offered a job both as a cleaner and a doctor within their criminal organization that could pay well enough to help her son and her family. Crossing into a moral gray zone, Thony begins living a double life, keeping secrets from her family, all the while cleaning up murder scenes and dodging the law.

While working as a cleaning woman, Thony De La Rosa witnesses her friend Theo getting gunned down by mobsters for failing to properly fix a cage match. After the mobsters discover her, a desperate Thony offers to erase all evidence of Theo's murder. Her work catches the eye of Arman Morales, who learns that Thony is an illegal immigrant whose son, Luca, needs expensive medical treatment. He leverages this information to get Thony to work for him as a professional cleaner. Thony's sister-in-law, Fiona, gets a job dealing ecstasy as a casino waitress; Thony objects, and Fiona angrily tells her to leave her house. Arman gets Thony to help him clean Theo's hideout when his body is discovered by the police; Arman's boss then informs him that a bomb has been planted to kill Thony, whom he regards as a liability. Arman rescues her in time, but the explosion leaves shrapnel embedded in his leg. Thony cleans the wound and forces Arman to accept a new deal: he will protect her and treat her with respect from now on. Back at home, Fiona tells Thony she quit her new job and they reconcile by building a new clean room so Luca can go outside. Thony leaves for her next job, unaware that FBI agents are monitoring her.

Production

Development

On October 22, 2019, it was announced that Warner Bros. Television Studios had acquired the remake rights to the Spanish-language Argentinian television series La Chica Que Limpia and was developing an English-language adaptation for Fox, with a script commitment attached. Miranda Kwok was set to write and develop the series adaptation, with Kwok also attached to executive produce with Melissa Carter and Shay Mitchell.[13] On January 23, 2020, Fox gave the project a pilot order, the first for the network's 2020–21 television season, with Fox Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television Studios set as co-production partners.[14] The series was ultimately pushed back to the 2021–22 television season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Fox giving a series greenlight consisting of ten hour-long episodes on May 7, 2021. Carter was set as showrunner and executive producer along with Kwok, and Michael Offer was also announced as director and executive producer of the pilot.[15] On May 17, 2021, during Fox's Upfront presentation, it was confirmed the series would premiere as a midseason entry during the 2021–22 television season.[16] On November 8, 2021, the series was announced to be premiering on January 3, 2022.[17] On April 7, 2022, Fox renewed the series for a second season.[18] The second season is scheduled to premiere on September 19, 2022.[19]

Casting

In March 2020, Shannyn Sossamon, Adan Canto, Ginger Gonzaga, and Vincent Piazza were cast in main roles for the pilot.[20][21][22] However, Sossamon exited the project after the pilot's initial table read.[23] On April 6, 2020, Élodie Yung was cast to replace Sossamon in the lead role. It was announced that the ethnicity of Yung's character would be changed to match Yung's Cambodian background, but that aspects of Filipino culture would still be integrated.[24] On July 2, 2020, Fox extended the cast options for the pilot through September 30, with the previous option having expired on June 30.[25] Due to the pandemic, cast options were extended further on October 2, 2020.[26] Upon the series order announcement, it was publicized that Martha Millan had replaced Gonzaga in the series and that Piazza had dropped out. In addition, twins Sebastien and Valentino LaSalle were also cast in a shared starring role.[15] On July 13, 2021, Oliver Hudson was cast to replace Piazza.[27] On September 21, 2021, Shiva Negar and Jay Mohr joined the cast in recurring roles.[28] On December 14, 2021, Liza Weil and Eva De Dominici were cast in recurring capacities.[29][30]

Filming

The pilot originally started filming on March 10, 2020, in New Mexico,[23] but production was suspended three days later due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[31] By July 2020, Fox had committed to filming the pilot alongside the network's five other pilots ordered for the 2020–21 television season, with production set to resume that summer.[25] However, filming was delayed again to October 5, 2020, and again to February 2021.[32][33]

Reception

Critical response

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 60% approval rating based on 15 critic reviews, with an average rating of 6.8/10, . The website's critics consensus reads, "Elodie Yung is winning as a resourceful protagonist in over her head, but The Cleaning Lady needs to polish its clichés into something more substantial if it wants to truly sparkle."[34] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 53 out of 100 based on 9 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[35]
