The SOFEE awards outstanding films and TV shows that authentically depict the female experience through compelling, female-driven narratives.
Starring Academy Award winner Brie Larson, who also serves as an executive producer, "Lessons in Chemistry" is an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Bonnie Garmus.
The series is set in the 1960s when a young, aspiring scientist named Elizabeth Zott is fired from her lab after discovering she's pregnant. She takes a job as a host on a cooking show and winds up teaching her audience more than just recipes.
"It isn't every day that a character like Elizabeth Zott walks into your life," executive producer Natalie Sandy said in a press release.
"When tasked with translating the rich world and characters in Bonnie Garmus's book to screen, it was impossible not to recognize our mission as a great privilege and responsibility. The entire team behind 'Lessons in Chemistry' is so honored and humbled to receive this award, which we could not have done without an astounding novel as our North Star. We are so incredibly grateful for the recognition and feel empowered to continue telling stories that resonate with women and inspire them to find their voices."
"Lessons in Chemistry" shines a spotlight on the historical struggles and progress made in the perception of women in society, inviting audiences to draw parallels between the past and the present.
The series was awarded a perfect score based on the evaluation criteria used by the CCA Women's Committee to determine eligibility for the prestigious Seal of Female Empowerment in Entertainment (SOFEE) for new titles. This recognition highlights the series' dedication to showcasing and celebrating women's empowerment in the entertainment industry, as recognized by the CCA Women's Committee.
