‘Mrs. Davis’ Trailer: Nun vs Artificial Intelligence in Betty Gilpin Series from ‘Lost’ Creator


Take a look at the official trailer that’s arrived for upcoming series Mrs. Davis, a unique-looking sci-fi drama led by GLOW and The Hunt star Betty Gilpin.

The series is set in a world where almost all decisions are made via algorithm. We follow a nun, Simone (Gilpin), who goes to battle against an all-powerful Artificial Intelligence known as “Mrs. Davis.” Jake McDorman (Dopesick, The Right Stuff) plays Gilpin’s rebellious ex, who also has a personal vendetta against the algorithm.

Described as “an exploration of faith versus technology and an epic battle of biblical and binary proportions,” the series was created by Damon Lindelof (Watchmen, The Leftovers, Lost) and Tara Hernandez (Young Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory). In addition to co-writing and executive producing Mrs. Davis with Lindelof, Hernandez serves as showrunner. Owen Harris (Black Mirror, Misfits) directs and executive produce multiple episodes, including the first. Alethea Jones (Evil, Shining Vale) also directs multiple episodes
