Apple has shared the Lessons in Chemistry and High Desert trailers.
The series Lessons in chemistry sees as a protagonist Brie Larson who plays Elizabeth Zott, whose dream of becoming a scientist was dashed because of female gender stereotypes at the time:
Set in the early 1960s, Lessons in Chemistry follows Elizabeth Zott whose dreams of becoming a scientist are put aside in a society that believes women belong in the domestic rather than the professional sphere.
When Elizabeth becomes pregnant, alone, and fired from the lab she worked in, she activates herself with the resourcefulness that only a single mother has. She takes a job hosting a TV cooking show and sets out to teach a nation of neglected housewives – and the men who are suddenly listening to her – about more than recipes, while longing for a return to her true love: science .
The series is based on Bonnie Garmus’ forthcoming novel of the same name and will be written by Academy Award nominee Susannah Grant. Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan will serve as executive producers.
