Apple has placed a straight-to-series order for an untitled drama series based on the life experiences of undercover CIA operative Amaryllis Fox and her upcoming memoir Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA, according to Variety ^(https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/captain-marvel-brie-larson-apple-series-1203156340/).
The report claims Brie Larson will both star in and produce the series, described as a look at a young woman’s journey in the CIA. In addition to starring as Carol Danvers in the upcoming Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame films, Larson had an Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning role in the 2018 film Room.
Michael Ellenberg and Lynette Howell Taylor will also serve as executive producers, according to the report. Ellenberg is also producing Apple’s morning show drama starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2018/11/08/apple-witherspoon-aniston-tv-show/), who were both reportedly invited to Apple’s expected streaming video service reveal on March 25 ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2019/02/13/apple-tv-service-launch-march-25/).
