The married couple are executive producing along with Moreno-Garcia and Albert Bianchini of Milojo Productions.

Consuelos confirmed on Twitter that he is developing a Mexican Gothic series.

The book, published in June, follows Noemi Taboada who heads to a distant house in the Mexican countryside after receiving a letter from her newly-wed cousin asking for help.

"We feel like we hit the literary jackpot, and cannot wait to bring Silvia's gorgeous writing to life, together with Hulu," Ripa said in a statement.

"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.

Moreno-Garcia is also known for penning Gods of Jade and Shadow.
