The 8-episode limited series is set to launch on October 21, 2022
The 8-episode limited series is based on the best-selling memoir From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home by Tembi Locke. Attica Locke serves as the showrunner and Hello Sunshine, Cinestar, and 3 Arts Entertainment executive produce.
From Scratch is a cross-cultural love story that follows Amahle "Amy" Wheeler (played by Zoe Saldaña) an American student studying abroad in Italy, as she meets and falls in love with Lino, a Sicilian chef. Their whirlwind romance faces many unforeseen challenges, including their very different cultural backgrounds; true to real life, it is also infused with lightheartedness and moments of humor that exist alongside the more serious ones. But when Lino is faced with unimaginable health challenges and the couple’s future is threatened, the two families come together to create an extended family unlike any they could have imagined, proving that love crosses all borders.
