The bizarre trailer for Peacock’s new series, ‘Mrs. Davis,’ features a war against AI

The first four episodes of “Mrs. Davis” will premiere on April 20 and the other four episodes will be released weekly. The show features Sister Simone, a nun that’s approached by the users of Mrs. Davis, a sentient AI that seems to be worshipped like a machine-learning cult leader. Mrs. Davis’ billions of followers wear earbuds to chat with the AI. You could also compare Mrs. Davis to Siri, Alexa or ChatGPT… but it’s actually all-knowing. Mrs. Davis assigns Simone with a seemingly impossible mission—search for the “Holy Grail.” However, Simone is suspicious of the AI and wants to destroy it instead. Simone is joined by her cowboy ex-boyfriend, Wiley, who is played by “What We Do in the Shadows” actor Jake McDorman.   Earlier this month, Peacock released a 30-second teaser alongside an interactive website that allows users to chat with Mrs. Davis themselves. The AI eventually asks you, “Are you ready to join me on a quest full of adventure and fulfillment?” If you select “Yes,” then you’re directed to Peacock’s sign-up page. Missing Attachment The sci-fi series couldn’t have come at a better time, given the wave of AI-powered tools. Can you imagine what Simone would think about ChatGPT? Plus, the new show is co-created by “Lost” creator Damon Lindelof and “The Big Bang Theory” writer Tara Hernandez, so it’s likely going to be a unique and creative show that will turn some heads. Owen Harris—known for “Black Mirror”–will also direct multiple episodes.
