Zoe Saldaña loves in Netflix’s “From Scratch” trailer

The new Netflix limited series “From Scratch”, starring Zoe Saldaña and Eugenio Mastrandrea, debuted Thursday with its first trailer.

Inspired by the New York Times bestselling memoir “From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily and Finding Home” by Tembi Locke, the eight-hour episodes of the adaptation will premiere on the streamer on October 21.

“In Italy we have a saying”, Mastrandrea’s voice slips on the opening sequence of the character of Zoe Saldaña who is studying abroad in Italy. “In dreams, as in love, everything is possible.”

“From Scratch” centers on Amahle ‘Amy’ Wheeler (Saldaña) as she leaves her hometown of Texas for college, and then the United States for a full semester studying abroad in Italy. Even though she plans to enroll in law school after graduation, her plans change when she literally runs into the beautiful Sicilian chef, Lino (Mastrandrea).

In addition to Saldaña and Mastrandrea, the cast includes Danielle Deadwyler, Keith David, Judith Scott, Kellita Smith, Lucia Sardo, Paride Benassai and Roberta Rigano.

“I came here to experience art,” says Amy from Saldaña. “To experience things I may never do again in my life.”

Lino asks Amy to let him cook for her in her restaurant. He expresses himself through food. This chance encounter quickly turns into love at the first bite.

“I think we can be something big,” Lino tells Amy – and they become.

The cross-cultural romance that unfolds isn’t without its challenges, however, as Lino moves in with Amy and struggles to adapt to America, wanting nothing more than to cook for the people rather than serving tables in a restaurant.

Later in the trailer, as time goes on, Lino is shown walking through a cancer screening machine, followed by a montage of the highlights of his and Amy’s wedding from the day of their wedding, their baby, the family they supports them in the wake of Lino’s illness and more. .

“Love is friendship; distress; Support; Family; Happiness; Ache; Beauty, “reads the text between Amy’s emotional sequences as she delivers the news to her family, her supporting family and the couple lying in a hospital bed together.

Sisters Tembi and Attica Locke co-created the series. Executive producers include them, Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Neustadter, Richard Abate, Jermaine Johnson, Will Rowbotham and Saldaña. Reese’s Book Club selected Tembi Locke’s memoir as its monthly pick in May 2019.

“Italians love a good love story,” Saldaña says at the end of the trailer. “And ours is for centuries.”
