Zoe Saldana and Reese Witherspoon are teaming up at Netflix for a limited series based on Tembi Locke’s best-selling memoir From Scratch, Silver Screen Beat has learned.

Saldana will star in and executive produce the series, which tells the story of an American woman who falls in love with a Sicilian man while studying abroad in Italy and 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.

“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,” Saldana said. “We are grateful to Netflix and thrilled to be working with Reese, Lauren, Attica and 3 Arts on this wonderful project.”

Tembi Locke’s sister, Attica Locke, will adapt the memoir and serve as showrunner, with Witherspoon, Lauren Neustadter, Richard Abate, Jermaine Johnson, Will Rowbotham, and Cisely and Mariel Saldana serving as executive producers.

“Tembi’s memoir is a raw and tender exhibition of life in all its pieces,” Witherspoon said. “She brings you into her love, her loss and her resilience with such vulnerability and strength. We immediately fell for Attica and Tembi’s vision and feel honored to have the opportunity to help bring it to life onscreen. We could not imagine more perfect partners for this than Zoe and her sisters and 3 Arts Entertainment, along with the incredible team at Netflix.”

Adam McKay is developing a limited series based on Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie K. Brown’s upcoming book about the well-connected, highly influential financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein for HBO, Silver Screen Beat can confirm.

The untitled series will be the first that McKay is producing under his newly established label Hyperobject Industries, which just inked a five-year, first-look television deal with HBO to produce content for the premium cable network and its upcoming streaming service HBO Max.

“We are delighted to continue our longtime collaboration with Adam McKay with this new deal,” said HBO president of programming Casey Bloys. “Adam is a uniquely talented director and producer, and we are looking forward to working with him and the team at Hyperobject on many projects to come.”

McKay will executive produce the series along with his longtime collaborator Kevin Messick and Brown, whose riveting investigative series ultimately led to the disgraced money manager’s arrest on sex trafficking charges in July.

On August 10, Epstein was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, with the New York City chief medical examiner ruling the cause of death suicide by hanging despite the suspicious circumstances surrounding Epstein’s untimely demise.
