’Z: The Beginning of Everything’ is a bio-series about Fitzgerald, Southern belle-turned-flapper, writer and icon of modern feminism. Starting right before Zelda meets unpublished writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1918, Z dives into the fascinating life of a woman ahead of her time and the story of the most famous, and infamous, couple of the Roaring 1920s,” according to a synopsis on Amazon, which released the first season of the show on its streaming service in 2015. The show also stars Gavin Stenhouse and David Strathaim.
