It will be the star of the adaptation of the book of Amyrillis Fox, Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA.
This is called having the sense of timing. While Brie Larson landed this week in the skin of Captain Marvel in the cinema, Apple announced that it had ordered a next series for its future platform, with the actress featured.
Based on the memoirs of Amyrillis Fox, Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA (which was not released until October 2019 in a library), this drama is still untitled, is described as a “contemporary look and provocative on the journey of a young woman in the CIA, told through the prism of its relations with the closest”.
We learn the scenes post-credits of Captain Marvel ?
Brie Larson will therefore be the star and thus joined a long list of celebrities already engaged by apple to boost its content (Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Chris Evans…).
This project will also be produced by Larson, alongside Lynette Howell, Samantha Housman and Michael Ellenberg. Megan Martin ( Animal Kingdom) will write the series, and will be showrunner.
