Brie Larson will take a break from cosmic combat as Captain Marvel to headline a CIA-centric TV series for Apple.
Brie Larson is already having a big week as her starring role in Marvel Studios’ first female-headlined movie, Captain Marvel (read our advance review), readies a weekend release. However, it’s just been boosted by another major coup in the medium of television. Indeed, the burgeoning small screen streaming platform of tech giant Apple has procured Larson as the star for what appears to be a major peak television offering.
Apple has signed Larson to star in a yet-to-be-titled drama in which she’ll play an undercover CIA operative. While details about the series are scarce, it is said to showcase “a provocative and contemporary look at a young woman’s journey in the CIA, told through the prism of her closest relationships.” Writer Megan Martin
