TVLine Items: Gilpin Is A.I.-Battling Nun, Made for Love's Return and More

Betty Gilpin Mrs. Davis

Technology will be no match for GLOW vet Betty Gilpin in Peacock’s upcoming drama Mrs. Davis, from co-writers/executive producers Damon Lindelof (Watchmen, Lost) and Tara Hernandez (Young Sheldon).

The series is described as “an exploration of faith versus technology — an epic battle of biblical and binary proportions,” with Gilpin starring as “a nun who goes to battle against an all-powerful Artificial Intelligence.”

Owen Harris (Black Mirror: San Junipero, Brave New World) will executive-produce and direct multiple episodes, including the pilot. Hernandez will serve as showrunner.
