Brie Larson to Star in New Series for Apple’s Upcoming Streaming Service

Brie Larson, the star of Captain Marvel, which will be the first film offered exclusively by Disney+ — has now signed on to star in a CIA drama for Apple’s upcoming streaming service. In the report by Variety, Larson will executive produce and play the lead role in a series based on the experiences of CIA undercover operative Amaryllis Fox.

The show, which is a straight-to-series order, joins other shows coming to Apple’s streaming service with big stars. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon will star in a TV Drama about the rivalry of morning TV shows. Another Marvel star, Chris Evans, will be the lead role in Defending Jacob, which tells story of a father dealing with the accusation that his 14-year-old son is a murderer.

According to a report in The Information, Apple plans to roll-out their streaming service in the U.S. by mid-April, then expand to 100 other countries within a few months. They plan to mix original programming, third party services, and the ability to subscribe to other services through Apple like HBO and Showtime — similar to Amazon Channels.

The company has also partnered with A24 who produced films like Lady Bird and Moonlight to make films for the service and announced a multi-year deal for original shows from Oprah. They have quietly acquired programming including a J.J. Abrams limited series starring Jennifer Garner, Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, a futuristic drama from Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence, and thriller series from M. Night Shyamalan.
