Just like fellow Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, and Julia Roberts before her, Brie Larson will soon be diverging from her movie-heavy career and dipping her toe into the prestige television waters.
According to Variety , Larson has signed on to star in and produce a new drama series for Apple's upcoming streaming service. The show, still untitled, will reportedly be based on the true story of Amaryllis Fox, who served as an undercover operative for the CIA throughout her mids.

According to a bio from talent agency WME, Fox, as a teenager, volunteered at a refugee camp on the Thai-Burmese border, where she was briefly imprisoned for her work with the Burmese democracy movement.

After several years with the spy agency, Fox started the e-commerce company Mulu, worked on Twitter's e-commerce team, and, as of late , now focuses full-time on writing about her experiences with counterterrorism. Last summer, she married Robert F. So, plenty of content for Larson and company to mine. This show is the latest to be announced as part of Apple's new streaming service, which still has yet to be unveiled.
