McDorman will play Gilpin’s rebellious ex, who also has a personal vendetta against the Algorithm. Gilpin’s character is a nun who goes to battle against an all-powerful Artificial Intelligence.
Mrs. Davis is produced by Warner Bros. Television, where both Hernandez and Lindelof are under overall deals. Hernandez serves as showrunner, executive producer, and co-writer on the series. Lindelof is executive producer and co-writer. Owen Harris will executive produce and direct multiple episodes, including the first episode. Eugene Kelly will also executive produce the drama series.
The series received a 10-episode order in May 2021. “A series like Mrs. Davis is exactly why we love making television. The brilliant minds of Tara Hernandez and Damon Lindelof have concocted one of the most innovative, undeniable concepts imaginable. We are so thrilled to be going on this wild ride with them,” Channing Dungey, Chairman, Warner Bros. Television Group, said in a statement at the time.
