THE DEVIL'S TAILOR
In a modern retelling of The Picture of Dorian Gray set in the world of high fashion, when top designer Adela Marquez is faced with the reality that her husband and right-hand man is dying, as well as mounting pressures from inside her family to sell her fashion empire, Adela is left with no choice but renegotiate the deal with her initial “angel investor”: the Devil.
Miguel Nolla, born in San Juan and raised in Miami, spent his early life living in resorts in both Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic where his father worked in the casinos. Miguel’s love of TV originated from the American sitcoms that aired after school and his grandmother’s telenovelas. After graduating from Florida State University with both a BFA in Film and a BA in English, Miguel packed up and drove cross-country to Silver Lake, California. Once in LA, Miguel worked his way up the mailroom at APA to TV Lit assistant and then made the jump to Shondaland, first as assistant to Shonda Rhimes and then as a writers’ assistant on Scandal. In that time Miguel wrote an episode of the Grey’s Anatomy webseries, co-wrote an episode of Scandal and sold a pilot about a major league baseball player struggling to stay in the closet titled Hardball to Logo. After being selected as part of the Disney ABC Writing Program, Miguel was staffed on Freeform’s Stitchers where he wrote until the show’s final season. Miguel’s Selena fanboy dreams came true when he sold a pitch inspired by the Latinx superstar to ABC with Scooter Braun producing. Miguel’s recent writing credits include Showtimes’ Hombre created by Jonas Cuaron, and Netflix’s First Kill produced by Emma Roberts. Miguel most recently sold his pitch Trap Queen to Freeform with Danny Strong and Scooter Braun producing, a queer romance set in the vibrant Puerto Rican Trap Music scene. Miguel, his crystals, and tarot deck collection reside in the Korea Town neighborhood of Los Angeles with his stage magician boyfriend.
