Betty Gilpin is on a mission to destroy an all-powerful artificial intelligence in the first trailer for Peacock’s upcoming series Mrs. Davis.
The trailer, released Tuesday, sees Gilpin’s Simone receive word that she is the only person who might stand a chance against Mrs. Davis. Simone is told that Mrs. Davis is “all knowing and all powerful. She not only knows you’re coming for her, but she wants you to.”
“Then I better get going,” Simone replies, setting out for battle. Along the way, she runs into Wiley (Jake McDorman), her rebellious ex, who also has a personal vendetta against the algorithm. He introduces her to the Resistance, which is willing to help her destroy Mrs. Davis.
Watch the full trailer above.
Mrs. Davis is described as “an exploration of faith versus technology — an epic battle of biblical and binary proportions.” The series also stars David Arquette, Elizabeth Marvel, Andy McQueen, Ben Chaplin, Margo Martindale, Katja Herbers, Chris Diamantopoulo, Ashley Romans, Tom Wlaschiha and Mathilde Ollivier.
In addition to co-writing and executive producing with Lindelof, Tara Hernandez serves as showrunner. Eugene Kelly also executive produces.

The series is produced by Warner Bros Television.
