TVLine reports that Ricci and Amazon's streaming arm are working on a new pilot about American novelist Zelda Fitzgerald, who also happens to be the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The hour-long project's working title is Z.

Zelda Fitzgerald began writing essays for magazines, short stories and was long an inspiration for her husband's own writing. She penned the novel "Save Me the Waltz."
