Based on the best-selling debut novel of the same name from author, science editor and copywriter Bonnie Garmus, Lessons in Chemistry stars Brie Larson (Captain Marvel, Room) as Elizabeth Zott, whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in the patriarchal society of the early 1950s. When Elizabeth finds herself fired from her lab, 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.

Starring alongside Larson are Lewis Pullman (Top Gun: Maverick, Outer Range), 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 premieres with the first two episodes on Friday, October 13, 2023, with new episodes debuting weekly on Fridays through November 24.

A production of Apple Studios for Apple TV+, the series is showrun by 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.
