Zoe Saldana To Star In and Executive Produce FROM SCRATCH Netflix Limited Series With Reese Witherspoon

Zoe Saldana To Star In and Executive Produce FROM SCRATCH Netflix Limited Series With Reese Witherspoon
"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Zoe Saldana and Reese Witherspoon ("Big Little Lies") are joining forces to adapt Tembi Locke's memoir "From Scratch" as a limited series for Netflix. The book was published in April by Simon and Schuster and was selected as Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine May 2019 book pick.

The biography follows an American woman as she falls in love with a Sicilian man while studying abroad in Italy then builds a life with him in the United States. When she unexpectedly loses him to illness, she is challenged to pull herself through grief so she can raise their daughter as they would have raised her together: with hope, joy and infinite love.

Saldana will star in and executive produce along with Witherspoon and Witherspoon's producing partner Lauren Neustadter. This will be Saldana's first regular television role. Tembi Locke's sister Attica will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series. She previously penned the script for Ava DuVernay's Netflix series "When They See Us", and was also a supervising producer and writer on Fox's "Empire".

Here is what Saldana had to say about the project:
"This is a profound true story of love and family, deprivation and nourishment, that needs to be brought to life on the screen as Tembi Locke brought it vividly to life for me on the page. We are grateful to Netflix and thrilled to be working with Reese, Lauren, Attica and 3 Arts on this wonderful project.".
