What are the chemistry lessons about?
Lessons in Chemistry is a drama series set in the 1950s that follows Elizabeth Zott (Larson), “whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in a society that considers women to belong in the domestic sphere, not to the professional”.
When Elizabeth finds herself pregnant, alone, and fired from her lab, she musters the resourcefulness that only a single mother can. She takes a job as a presenter on a TV cooking show and sets out to teach a nation of ignored housewives, and the men who suddenly listen to her, much more than recipes…while longing to return to her true love : The science. .
It’s currently unclear exactly when Lessons in Chemistry will debut on Apple TV+, but the company has revealed that it will arrive in 2023.
