Betty Gilpin Will Swap Her Bejeweled Leotards For A Nun’s Habit In Damon Lindelof’s Upcoming Peacock Series Mrs. Davis† The show is slated to portray Gilpin as the religious force fighting an omniscient, omnipotent artificially intelligent enemy. Gilpin versus the Metaverse marks a new collaboration between the actress and Lindelof na The hunta loose adaptation of the short story “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell.
Damon Lindelof already got you Lostbrought you leftoversand persuaded you to look guards† Now he is ready to introduce you to the mysterious one Mrs. Davis. According to an earlier announcement from the streamer, Peacock has placed an outright order for Lindelof’s ten-part drama and Young Sheldon writer Tara Hernandez, produced by Warner Bros. television. Hernandez will show run Mrs. Davis, in addition to co-writing the series with Lindelof; both will executive produce. Owen Harris, the Emmy-winning director of Black mirror: San Juniperowill also bring his dystopian expertise as an executive producer to the show.
“Tara Hernandez is an astonishingly original talent,” Lindelof said in a statement. “Talk about Mrs. Davis having her was one of the few things that kept me sane during the pandemic… can’t wait for the world to be introduced to both of them.” Hernandez says: “In a year that felt totally surreal, working with Damon to the world of Mrs. Davis really takes the cake. To have the support of Warner Bros., who championed our vision from the start, and to now have the perfect home at Peacock with Susan, Lisa and the rest of their incredible team – I have no words. I promise to find them as we bring this wonderfully strange story to life.”
However, if you think you are about to learn what? Mrs. Davis is actually about, you clearly have to go back to watch Lost or the leftovers again. According to the streamer’s press release, “While plot details are being kept secret, Peacock can confirm that the series is an exploration of faith versus technology — an epic battle of biblical and binary proportions.” To be fair, that could very well describe most Damon Lindelof series. And maybe Young Sheldon, at? We have to catch up to be sure.
