It’s an American period drama television series created by Tim Blake Nelson for Amazon Studios that debuted their pilot on November 5, 2015. “Z: The Beginning of Everything” is based on the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, the brilliant, beautiful and talented Southern Belle who becomes the original flapper and icon of the Jazz Age in the 20s.
Christina Ricci stars as Zelda and will also serve as an executive producer for the series. Written by Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin, the series is directed by Tim Blake Nelson and exec. produced by Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon of Killer Films.
The client looked through our submissions and hand picked twenty-three that specifically fit with what they were looking for. This is a great opportunity for our various talent. Not only will they have a shot at being extras in a new show for a top tier production company, but they will meet industry professionals that know their way around the industry. Our talent will have a shot at finding bigger roles with Amazon as they work on several different original series’ and movies. Being an extra is sometimes the start to something much bigger. Being paid to be apart of a successful show will look great on resumes and help build your portfolio so you are hired easier in the future!
