In the electrifying trailer for her new Peacock series, the incomparable Betty Gilpin faces off against the world’s most beloved algorithm, Mrs. Davis. The first look clues us into a tension-filled showdown as viewers are drawn into a high-stakes battle of wits and wills, with Gilpin’s character determined to topple the seemingly unbeatable digital giant.
The GLOW, The Hunt and Gaslit star shines in her introduction as Simone, a feisty and determined nun with an epic mission: to find the Holy Grail. But her quest quickly takes a wild turn when she comes up against the all-powerful artificial intelligence known as “Mrs. Davis,” who’s determined to stop Simone in her tracks.
In a world where the fate of humanity rests on the quest for the Holy Grail, Simone is the only one who can rise to the challenge. But as she sets out on her mission, she realizes that the path to glory isn’t as straightforward as she thought. With every step, she faces new obstacles and enemies, and she soon finds herself drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the all-powerful artificial intelligence, “Mrs. Davis.”
As Simone prepares for the ultimate showdown, she’s warned by those around her that “Mrs. Davis” is not to be underestimated. With her ability to see all and control all, the AI seems unbeatable. But Simone is not one to back down from a challenge. She decides to take a path of resistance, using all her wit and resourcefulness to outsmart it.
The Emmy-nominated actress leads the charge, alongside Jake McDorman and Andy McQueen co-starring. McDorman plays Gilpin’s rebellious ex, who also happens to have a personal vendetta against the all-powerful algorithm.
The series has already generated buzz with a high-concept teaser that introduced “Mrs. Davis” to audiences through an interactive site, inviting them to join her “quest” and earn “wings” by completing various tasks. The AI’s introductory note promises adventure, escape, and a chance to experience everything from laughter to tears.
With eight episodes in total, the series is set to make its official debut at the SXSW Film Festival, with the first four episodes being released together before airing weekly. Produced by Warner Bros. Television, this series promises to be a must-watch event for fans of sci-fi, comedy, and everything in between.
