Avengers star Brie Larson is going to be taking bigger responsibilities than acting. According to reports via Variety, the 31-year-old actress will star in and be an executive producer for an Apple drama series called Lessons in Chemistry. The upcoming series that is already raising anticipation levels amongst fans, will be based on the upcoming debut novel from author, science editor, and copywriter Bonnie Garmus.

 

The summary of the new show via Variety reads: “Set in the early 1960s, Lessons in Chemistry follows Elizabeth Zott (Larson), whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in a society deeming that women belong in the domestic sphere, not the professional one. When Elizabeth finds herself pregnant, alone and fired from her lab, she musters the ingenuity only a single mother has. She accepts a job as a host on a TV cooking show, and sets out to teach a nation of overlooked housewives – and the men who are suddenly listening – a lot more than recipes, all the while craving a return to her true love: science.”

 

The show has fans waiting with excitement, especially with such a great team behind the scenes! Erin Brockovich screenwriter Susannah Grant is reported to be writing the series. The book itself is slated to be published in Spring of 2022.

 

If you missed it, back in November 2020, on her Youtube channel, Brie Larson revealed that she always thought she was “ugly.” While talking about beauty standards, she said: “I don’t believe that there is a beauty standard. I struggled with feeling ugly and like an outcast for so much of my life. And so I really, really feel for that. It took me a long time to be able to be totally comfortable with myself,” she said.
