Lessons In Chemistry (Apple TV+, October 13)
Based on the novel by the same name, Lessons in Chemistry is set in the 1950s and will inevitably make viewers ask if it is based on a true story. It is not. But the story, which follows scientist Elizabeth Zott (played by Brie Larson), will feel very real–especially to those who lived through that era in history. Zott dreams of being a scientist, but when she is fired from her lab, she accepts a job as a host on a TV cooking show and sets out to teach her fans about chemistry in a whole new way.
