Unleashing Mrs. Davis: Watch the Thrilling Trailer Now
The official trailer for Mrs. Davis was released on March 14, 2023. Sister Simone receives instructions to find the Holy Grail. Simone’s goal is to overthrow Mrs. Davis and free humanity.
The film’s trailer shows off Lindelof’s prodigious capacity for world-building. There are many pianos in the field. a massive Excalibur sword protruding from a rock. Renaissance recreations. nuns who party hard. A motorcyclist performing a big donut jump. All to the tune of “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. It’s a gorgeously fantastical setting that is beyond Dall-E and Midjourney’s combined abilities. If it weren’t for the genuine danger of an AI takeover, everything would seem pretty surreal. Simone, who is luckily faithful and courageous and can use what appears to be a sci-fi nunchuck, is warned by Wiley that “it’s only a matter of time before everyone on earth does whatever it asks them to.”
A 50-second teaser for Mrs Davis was released on March 1, 2023, which you can see below before the full-length trailer.

Mrs. Davis: Meet the Series Creators
One of television’s most creative minds, Damon Lindelof, the award-winning mind behind the critically acclaimed programmes Watchmen (2019), The Leftovers, and LOST. Which he served as co-creator and showrunner, is the genius of Mrs. Davis. His credits for major motion pictures include World War Z, Prometheus, and Star Trek. Lindelof teamed up with Mrs. Davis co-creator and showrunner Tara Hernandez. Who is best known for her work on The great Bang Theory and Young Sheldon, in quest of his next great thing. Hernandez created the moniker Mrs. Davis in honour of her cherished elementary school teacher.
Both of them will create the script and oversee production. Alberto Roldán, Jonny Sun, Noelle Vinas, Chikira Bennett, Jason Lew, Jason Ning, and Nadra Widatalla are additional series writers. Along with Eugene Kelly (Westworld), who also serves as an executive producer, the show’s pilot episode is directed by Owen Harris (Black Mirror), while many episodes are shot by Alethea Jones (Evil). One episode also bears Frederick E.O. Toye’s name as director. Warner Bros. Television is responsible for producing the show for Peacock.
It is helpful to understand history in order to completely comprehend its insanity. Long before ChatGPT erupted into the mainstream, Lindelof and Hernandez conceived the concept of an all-powerful AI in the year 2020. Hernandez expressed frustration at the lack of accurate information surrounding COVID by saying, “I wish there was an app we could click on that would tell us what to do.”
“Within half an hour, it was, ‘That’s what the nuns should be fighting against,'” Lindelof and Hernandez remark to Vulture. Because if it existed, God would finally be replaced by that app.

The trailer showcases the show’s fantastical setting and talented ensemble cast, including Betty Gilpin and Jack McDorman. Created by Damon Lindelof and Tara Hernandez, the concept of an all-powerful AI was born out of frustration with COVID misinformation.
