Captain Marvel's Brie Larson to Star as Undercover CIA Agent in New Apple TV Series

Apple TV is the place to be for Marvel actors

Lindsay MacDonald

Brie Larson is really leaning hard into the action-packed roles lately, on both the big and small screens!

Deadline reports that Larson has signed on to star in and produce a new Apple TV drama series based on Amaryllis Fox's upcoming memoir Undercover: Coming of Age. It's described as a female-centric CIA drama that tells a semi-biographical series based on Fox's real-life experiences as an undercover operative. Larson has signed on as the lead, but so far there are no plot or character details available besides that it will be "a contemporary look at a young woman's journey in the CIA."

Larson isn't the only Marvel actor to hitch their star to the Apple TV wagon though. Chris Evans, aka Captain America, is set to executive produce and star in another Apple TV series, Defending Jacob. It is a limited series that follows the story of a father whose teenage son is accused of murder.
