Apple TV + is ready to get a new drama series called Chemistry Lessons, starring Brie Larson and executive producer.
Based on an upcoming novel by Bonnie Garmus, the series is set in the early 1960s and follows Elizabeth (Larson). Larson’s character aspires to be a scientist, which is unrealistic considering the times when women were expected to stay home. However, despite the situations that dismiss her from her job, she still strives to become a scientist.
The novel won’t be published until 2022, so it’s unclear when the series will launch.
Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan will also serve as executive producers on the series through their Aggregate Films banner which produces shows such as Ozark and The outsiders.
Larson will also star in another Apple TV + series based on the memoir, Undercover life: coming of age in the CIA. Unfortunately, COVID-19 and some problems in the writing process of the program have caused Apple to stop the project.
