Betty Gilpin To Play Nun Battling AI In Peacock Series ‘Mrs. Davis’

Peacock announced today that three-time Emmy Award-nominee Betty Gilpin (GLOW, The Hunt) will star in the leading role of the highly-anticipated drama series Mrs. Davis, from Tara Hernandez (Young Sheldon) and Damon Lindelof (Watchmen, The Leftovers). The series comes from Warner Bros. Television, where both Hernandez and Lindelof are under overall deals.

Though plot details are being kept under wraps, Peacock can confirm that the series is an exploration of faith versus technology — an epic battle of biblical and binary proportions. Gilpin will play a nun who goes to battle against an all-powerful Artificial Intelligence. 

Mrs. Davis showrunners Lindelof and Hernandez

Hernandez will act as Showrunner and co-writer alongside Lindelof. Both are slated as executive producers alongside Owen Harris (Black Mirror: San Junipero). Harris is also set to direct several episodes of Mrs. Davis. Gilpin and Lindelof previously worked together on satirical thriller The Hunt
