Christina Ricci Zelda Fitzgerald

Amazon and Christina Ricci have come up with a novel idea for a new TV series.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Ricci is set to star in and exec-produce an Amazon pilot about celebrated American novelist (and wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald) Zelda Fitzgerald.

The hour-long project’s working title is Z.

An Amazon rep declined to comment for this story.

Ricci recently played another iconic American woman — Lizzie Borden — in Lifetime’s eight-episode The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (and the TV movie that preceded it).
