Brie Larson Will Star in, Executive Produce Upcoming Apple Series Based on Real Life Undercover CIA Operatives
Brie Larson (Room, Kong: Skull Island) is set to debut as Carol Danvers in Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel this weekend. And now the actress has her next project nailed down.
That is, as far as TV is concerned. Variety is reporting on Wednesday that the actress is set to star in, and serve as executive producer, for an upcoming drama based on real life undercover operatives working for the Central Intelligence Agency. Larson will take on the lead role, which is based off the memoire Life Undercover: Coming of Age in CIA written by Amaryllis Fox.
Apple has reportedly already ordered the drama as straight-to-series. When it does break onto the scene, it will tell the story of a young woman as she navigates the CIA and its trappings.
“The untitled series is based on the real life experiences of CIA undercover operative Amaryllis Fox and her upcoming memoir, “Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA,” which will be published by Knopf on Oct. 15. The series is described as a look at a young woman’s (Larson) journey in the CIA, told through the prism of her closest relationships.”
Larson has a lengthy resume in film already. She appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. She has also appeared in 21 Jump Street and The Spectacular Now. As mentioned above, she will be starring in the forthcoming Captain Marvel, and will then reprise the role in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame later this year.
Larson won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2016 for her role as Ma in the drama Room.
No word on when the series will actually debut. Meanwhile, Apple is rumored to be showcasing its upcoming streaming service at an event on March 25.
