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 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 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.

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