No couple epitomised the rebellion and the glamour of the Jazz Age like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda Fitzgerald, and now their tumultuous romance and life will be brought alive in a bio-series titled ‘Z: The Beginning of Everything’ on Amazon Prime Video. It is a 10-episode half-hour bio-series following the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald (Christina Ricci), Southern Belle turned flapper, writer and icon of modern feminism. The series dives into the fascinating life of a woman ahead of her time and tells the story of her passionate, yet turbulent relationship with husband, F. Scott Fitzgerald (David Hoflin).
It is a ground-breaking concept: a fictionalised bio series of the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, the brilliant, beautiful and talented Southern Belle who becomes the original flapper and icon of the wild, flamboyant, Jazz Age in the 20s. The series begins the moment Zelda meets the unpublished writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in Montgomery, Alabama in 1918 and moves through their passionate, turbulent love affair and their marriage -- made in heaven, lived out in hell -- as the celebrity couple of their time. It will show the alcoholism, adultery and struggle with dashed dreams and mental illness that leads to Zelda's tragic, untimely end. It dives into the fascinating life of a woman ahead of her time, an artist determined to establish her own identity in the tempestuous wake of a world-famous husband.
