Lessons in Chemistry: Brie Larson to Star in Apple’s New Drama Series

Brie Larson is set to star in the Apple TV+ drama "Lessons in Chemistry", which has been given a straight-to-series order, the streaming service said Friday.

The series is set in the early 1960s and centres on Elizabeth Zott (Larson), whose dreams of being a scientist are rebuffed by a society that still deems a woman's place is in the home.

Larson will also star in another Apple TV+ series based on the memoir, Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the Central Intelligence Agency.

When Elizabeth is pregnant, alone and with no prospect of improvement in her life, she takes a job as a host on a television cooking show.

Apple Studios is set to produce the series with Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan as co-executive producers.


Captain Marvel star and Animal Crossing enthusiast Brie Larson has signed on for a brand new TV project for Apple TV+.

It is based on author, science editor, and copywriter Bonnie Garmus' upcoming debut novel. A report on Variety stated that Susannah Grant, who had written the screenplay for the Academy Award-winning film Erin Brockovich has been assigned to write the screenplay for the series.

So far there's no word on when the series will premiere.

The Lessons in Chemistry novel is slated to be published in spring 2022 by Doubleday in the USA and Transworld in the United Kingdom. And before that, she won an Oscar and Golden Globe in 2015 for her role in Room. She is set to reprise the superhero in the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel that will be directed by Nia DaCosta.

Brie Larson will be reprising her Carol Danvers role in the second Captain Marvel film, which will be the franchise's first big screen movie to be directed by a Black woman, specifically Nia DaCosta, who has already helmed a crime thriller and is working on this year's Candyman reboot.
