A little more than a year ago, Apple launched its own streaming service and has built quite the library of original content. With hits like The Morning Show, Dickinson, Central Park, and Servant, Apple continues to seek out new projects with big-name performers. Recently, Samuel L. Jackson, Will Ferrell, and Kathryn Hahn have signed on for upcoming shows heading to Apple TV+. As first reported by THR, Brie Larson is the next actor set to star in and produce a new series in the works at the streamer.
The series, titled Lessons In Chemistry, will be based on the upcoming debut novel from author Bonnie Garmus. Taking place in the early 1960s, the story follows Elizabeth Zott, played by Larson in the upcoming adaptation. After growing up with the dream of becoming a scientist, the ugly reality of the expectations of women in society begins to take shape for Elizabeth. After she finds herself pregnant, alone, and unemployed, she must muster the strength to carry on. Zott accepts a job as the host of a TV cooking show and decides to use the platform to share her love for science with a nationwide audience.
Susannah Grant (The Soloist) is writing and executive producing the series. Additionally, Ozark star Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan (Ghost in the Shell) are also on-board to executive produce through their Aggregate Films banner.
Following her momentous win for Best Actress thanks to her role in Room, Brie Larson has become a household name. Additionally, her starring role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain Marvel solidified her place as a pop culture icon. Following an appearance in Avengers: Endgame, Larson will star in the upcoming Captain Marvel 2, directed by Nia DaCosta.
