What to Expect in Lessons in Chemistry on Apple TV+?
Here’s what the official premise of the show from Apple TV+ states-
Set in the early 1950s, “Lessons in Chemistry” 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.
The series which is being adapted from the novel, is based on the author’s real-life experience of her work as a creative director being stolen by a male executive in 2013. ‘Lessons in Chemistry’ was named Barnes & Noble’s book of the year in 2022. The book was originally called ‘Introduction to Chemistry’.
