The story of Restart is based on the homonymous memoir written by Tembi Locke, in which she transcribes her experience of knowing love and also of loss, after the death of her husband.

Tembi talked about the casting process and how it was a dream come true to be able to have Zoe Saldana as an integral part of it all: “Having Zoe Saldana participate in Recomeço was literally a casting dream. We knew that casting certain characters would be a challenge, particularly for the lead role of Lino, based on my late husband. Attica (Tembi’s sister) called me after she saw an actor audition for the first time. She had a visceral reaction and said we should accompany each other on the phone while I watched. From that connection, we realized. Here was someone we didn’t know, but who seemed to be part of the family. Everyone in our cast causes that feeling.”

In addition to Zoe and Eugenio, the cast of the miniseries also includes Danielle Deadwyler, Keith David, Kellita Smith, Judith Scott, Lucia Sardo, Paride Benassai and Roberta Rigano.
