Story by Jack Foley

CAPTAIN Marvel star Brie Larson is returning to TV in a new CIA series for Apple.

The untitled drama will be based on the real-life experiences of CIA undercover operative Amaryllis Fox and her upcoming memoir, Life Undercover: Coming of Age in the CIA.

The series is described as a provocative and contemporary look at a young woman’s journey in the CIA, as relayed through her closest relationships.

The book, from publishers Knopf, is not due until October 15 this year (2019).

The show marks a return to the small screen for Larson, whose previous credits include Showtime’s Diablo Cody dramedy United States of Tara and WB Network comedy Raising Dad.

Since then, she has become an Oscar winning actress for her performance in provocative drama Room as well as appearing in blockbusters such as Kong: Skull Island.

Her latest, Captain Marvel, is the first Marvel movie built around a female superhero. It opens in cinemas this weekend and looks to be on course for a US start of around $150 million.
