Damon Lindelof to Follow Up 'Watchmen' with the New Series 'Mrs. Davis'
The project promises to be "an exploration of faith versus technology"
Published May 27, 2021Following the massive success of Watchmen, creator Damon Lindelof has just announced his next project. It's a series called Mrs. Davis, and rather than come to HBO, it's headed to NBCU's Peacock streaming service.
In a move that's a bit strange on paper, Lindelof will be teaming up with Tara Hernandez of The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon for the series, Deadline reports. It's described as "an exploration of faith versus technology — an epic battle of biblical and binary proportion."
Mrs. Davis will be made up of 10 episodes, but so far, the plot details are still being kept under wraps. That said, according to Deadline, the show "has a dark satirical edge and focuses on a world where almost all decisions are made via algorithm. Containing secrets within secrets, each season will centre on a particular mystery or dilemma, that will be resolved by the end of the cycle."
In a statement, Lindelof — who also was behind such series as Lost and Leftovers — said, "Tara Hernandez is an astonishingly original talent. Talking about Mrs. Davis with her was one of the few things that kept me sane through the pandemic…I can't wait for the world to be introduced to both of them."
Hernandez added: "In a year that has felt totally surreal, partnering with Damon to craft the world of Mrs. Davis truly takes the cake. To have the support of Warner Bros., who championed our vision from the beginning, and to now have the perfect home at Peacock alongside Susan, Lisa, and the rest of their incredible team — I am at a loss for words. I promise to find them as we bring this wonderfully weird story to life."
