Erik Gruenwedel

Apple TV+ May 31 announced its upcoming limited drama series “Lessons in Chemistry,” starring and executive produced by Academy Award winner Brie Larson, will make its debut with the first two episodes on Friday, Oct. 13.

Based on the bestselling, debut novel of the same name from author, science editor and copywriter Bonnie Garmus, the show — set in the early 1950s — follows Elizabeth Zott (Larson), whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in a patriarchal society. 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. New episodes will debut weekly on Fridays through Nov. 24.

Co-stars include 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”).

The series is produced for Apple TV+ by Apple Studios. Six-time Emmy Award nominee Lee Eisenberg (“We Crashed,” “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.
