Brie Larson to star in new spy series for Apple

Brie Larson, who is incredibly hot right now thanks to her starring role in the MCU’s Captain Marvel movie, has signed up for another project: here’s everything we know about her upcoming Apple TV series.

TV Line reports that the series will be based on the upcoming memoir Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA, which was penned by Amyrillis Fox. This implies that there will be an element of ‘based on a true story’ going on here.

The show, which doesn’t have a title yet, has apparently been described as a “provocative and contemporary look at a young woman’s journey in the CIA, told through the prism of her closest relationships.”

Apple has ordered a full series along these lines, with Larson set to star. Prior to headlining Captain Marvel, the biggest flicks on Larson’s CV included Room, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and Kong: Skull Island. She’ll also appear, presumably to save the day, in Avengers: Infinity War later this year.

This isn’t the first time Apple has recruited a major star for an intriguing new show: they’ve also got Chris Evans, Jason Momoa, Jennifer Garner, Steve Carell and Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon working on projects.
