The trailer for Netflix’s upcoming limited drama series “From Scratch” is officially here, promising a well-seasoned love story starring Zoe Saldana and Italian cuisine galore.
The story follows study abroad student Amahle Wheeler (Saldana) as she explores the Italian city of Sicily. While she’s there, she falls in love with the city’s culture and food, as well as a struggling Italian chef.
The upcoming project is based on actor Tembi Locke’s 2019 memoir, “From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily and Finding a Home,and consists of eight episodes.
Locke’s memoir details her journey to rebuild her life after the death of her Italian husband.
In a 2019 interview with TODAY, Locke shared that her husband Saro fell in love with her at first sight. She also discussed how her interracial relationship affected her dynamic with her family and how she learned to rely on food and cooking after her untimely death.
In 2012, Saro died of a rare form of soft tissue cancer.
“Our friendship got deeper and bigger because we got to see parts of each other that might not have asked us to step forward if it wasn’t for the disease,” he explained in the interview. “I think he’s giving us a smile back today.”
“From Scratch” will premiere on October 1. 21, 2022.
