Betty Gilpin will play a nun who battles an all-powerful A.I. in Tara Hernandez and Damon Lindelof’s Mrs. Davies

Peacock announced that three-time Emmy Award-nominee Betty Gilpin (GLOW, The Hunt) will star in the leading role of the highly-anticipated drama series Mrs. Davies, from Tara Hernandez and Damon Lindelof. 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 has confirmed 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.

Emmy Award-winning director Owen Harris (Black Mirror: San Junipero, Brave New World) will executive produce and direct multiple episodes, including the first episode.

Gilpin previously collaborated with Lindelof on the subversive satirical thriller The Hunt.

Betty Gilpin is a three-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee for her performance in the critically acclaimed Netflix television series GLOW. This April, she co-stars in STARZ’s Gaslit opposite Julia Roberts and Sean Penn, and she will be featured in the Apple TV+ feminist anthology series Roar, executive produced by Nicole Kidman. Gilpin also stars in the upcoming Showtime drama series Three Women, based on the bestselling book by Lisa Taddeo.

Tara Hernandez most recently served as a writer and co-executive producer of TV’s #1 comedy, Young Sheldon. She previously was a writer and co-executive producer on the long-running blockbuster hit comedy The Big Bang Theory.

A prolific, award-winning creator known for ambitious and genre-bending storytelling, Lindelof’s most recent television credits include the critically-acclaimed series Watchmen and The Leftovers, both of which he was co-creator and showrunner. Prior to that, Lindelof was co-creator and co-showrunner of the game-changing TV juggernaut LOST. His feature film credits include Star Trek, Prometheus, World War Z, and Tomorrowland, among others.
