Following a headline slot in yesterday's sizzle and last month's first-look, 'Lessons in Chemistry' has set its two-episode global premiere for October 13.
Based on the bestselling, debut novel of the same name from author, science editor and copywriter Bonnie Garmus, “Lessons in Chemistry,” set in the early 1950s, follows Elizabeth Zott (played by 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 November 24, 2023.
The eight-part limited series showrun by Lee Eisenberg (WeCrashed, Little America) and executive-produced by Brie Larson, Susannah Grant, Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan will see Larson joined onscreen by an ensemble cast that includes Lewis Pullman, Aja Naomi King, Stephanie Koenig, Kevin Sussman, Patrick Walker and Thomas Mann.
