Zoe Saldana will both star and team up as producer with Reese Witherspoon for an adaption of Tembi Locke’s memoir From Scratch.

The book was published back in April by Simon and Schuster and was selected by Reese’s Book Club in May. Attica Locke, who is author Tembi Locke’s sister will be the executive producer and showrunner, who previously also worked on the  Netflix series When They See Us and Fox’s Empire. Besides Attica Locke, Saldana and Witherspoon themselves will also officially be executive producers, together with Lauren Neustadter, Richard Abate, Jermaine Johnson, and Will Rowbotham from 3 Arts Entertainment, while Mariel Saldana and Cisely Saldana are co-producers.

This will not be Witherspoon’s first TV-project, while this will be Saldana’s first regular television role. Witherspoon has previously worked as executive producer and star in the Emmy-winning HBO series Big Little Lies, and Saldana is known for her films such as AvatarStar Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
