Latina Cinderella Dania Ramirez may have taken off her glass slipper, but she’s not through with fairy tales just yet. The Dominican actress just landed a leading role in CBS All Access’ straight-to-series Tell Me a Story, reports Deadline.
Like in ABC’s Once Upon a Time, where Ramirez, 38, played Cinderella for its final season, the new show, created by Kevin Williamson and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, reimagines our favorite childhood storylines.
“Super excited to share this news with all my #Daniacs,” the actress wrote on her Instagram, with fans sharing their joy and anticipation.

Set in New York, the series turns beloved tales into twisted thrillers. The first season of the serialized drama will meld “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel” into a dark tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder.
Ramirez will play a young Army vet named Hannah, who recently returns to the city with physical and mental scars. Hoping to rebuild her life, things take a sinister twist when her estranged brother calls for help from a deadly chase.
The Afro-Latina, famous for roles in Devious Maids, Entourage and Heroes, will star in Tell Me a Story alongside James Wolk, Danielle Campbell, Paul Wesley, Billy Magnussen and Kim Catrall.
