Apple TV+ Sets Premiere Date for Brie Larson’s “Lessons in Chemistry”

Today Apple TV+ announced the premiere date for its upcoming limited drama series Lessons in Chemistry, starring and executive produced by Academy Award winner (and Geekiary fave) Brie Larson (Captain Marvel, The Room). This highly-anticipated series will debut its first two episodes on Friday, October 13, 2023.

Lessons in Chemistry, based on the best-selling, debut novel of the same name from author, science editor and copywriter Bonnie Garmus, is set in the 1950s and follows Elizabeth Zott (Larson), who struggles to fulfill her dream of being a scientist in a patriarchal society. When she is fired from her job at a laboratory, she accepts a job hosting a television cooking show and “sets out to teach a nation of overlooked housewives – and the men who are suddenly listening – a lot more than recipes”. New episodes will drop weekly on Fridays through November 24.

Don’t mind me, just adding this book to my massive to-read pile. Seriously, though, that’s such a great premise for a series! I love the idea of a woman just competently being amazing at something many people would dismiss as “easy”. It’s a way for her to prove her as intellectually capable as any man and also signify that traditional “women’s work” isn’t as simple as some people may think. There is a lot of opportunity for creativity and innovation when it comes to housework.

The series also stars Lewis Pullman (Top Gun: Maverick, Outer Range), NAACP Image Award-winner Aja Naomi King (How to Get Away with Murder, The Birth of a Nation), Stephanie Koenig (The Flight Attendant, The Offer), Kevin Sussman (The Big Bang Theory, The Dropout), Patrick Walker (Gaslit, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey), and Thomas Mann (Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl).

Lessons in Chemistry is produced for Apple TV+ by Apple Studios. Six-time Emmy Award-nominee Lee Eisenberg (WeCrashed, Little America) serves as showrunner. Academy Award-nominee Susannah Grant (Unbelievable, Erin Brockovich) executive produces alongside Larson. Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan (Ozark, A Teacher) executive produce for Aggregate Films. Natalie Sandy executive produces through Piece of Work Entertainment alongside Eisenberg. Louise Shore also serves as executive producer.
