Brie Larson’s ‘Lessons in Chemistry’ Trailer Breaks Stereotypes

The recently released trailer for Lessons in Chemistry showcases Brie Larson challenging stereotypes of women in the 1950s through her television cooking show.

The popular New York Times best-selling book Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus will be adapted into a limited series on Apple TV+ this fall. The series will be led by Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson and is set in the 1950s.

It promises to evoke the spirit of beloved shows like Julia, The Big Bang Theory, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but with a stronger focus on drama and emotional depth.

“I stand proudly with the overlooked workhorse of the kitchen, women and baked potatoes,” Larson can be heard saying during one of her cooking show segments.

Lessons in Chemistry is an eight-episode series set in the early 1950s, centering around Elizabeth Zott, portrayed by Brie Larson. Elizabeth, an aspiring scientist, faces obstacles in a patriarchal society that hinders her dreams. After losing her job at a lab, she unexpectedly gets the opportunity to host a TV cooking show, which she takes on. However, instead of simply sharing recipes, Elizabeth decides to utilize her platform to educate overlooked housewives and capture the attention of men, encouraging them to learn more than just culinary skills.

A man says to Larson in the trailer, “Politics don’t belong in the kitchen. A man wants his wife to make him a drink after a long day at work,” She responds, “Why do you assume that his day was longer than hers? Why don’t you make the drink?”

Lewis Pullman, Aja Naomi King, Stephanie Koenig, Kevin Sussman, Patrick Walker, and Thomas Mann join Brie Larson in the cast of Lessons in Chemistry.

Lee Eisenberg is a showrunner for the series. Susannah Grant serves as an executive producer, alongside Brie Larson, Michael Costigan, Sarah Adina Smith, Louise Shore, Jason Bateman for Aggregate Films, and Natalie Sandy through Piece of Work Entertainment.

The show will premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, October 13, with the release of two episodes. Subsequently, one episode will be released each week on Fridays until November 24.
