According to Varietythe drama will follow “Elizabeth Zott (Larson), whose dream of being a scientist is put on hold in a society deeming that women belong in the domestic sphere, not the professional one.”

The publication added: “When Elizabeth finds herself pregnant, alone and fired from her lab, she musters the ingenuity only a single mother has.

“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, all the while craving a return to her true love: science.”


Last summer, Larson shared a brief rendition on social media of ‘The 1’, the opening track of Taylor Swift’s album ‘Folklore’.

Taking to Twitter, Larson posted a video of her with her guitar singing the first minute or so of the track, writing “This cover of “the 1” by @taylorswift13 is dedicated to my forever Swiftie friend, Jessie.”
