The latest installment of “A.C.E.” will feature a new villain.
A.I. is a computer program created by two artists who went by the moniker “The One” and “the One,” in reference to a character from the “A” franchise, the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The series will follow A. I. as she searches for answers about her father’s disappearance and the fate of her mother.
“It’s about an AI that learns from its environment and learns how to play a game,” executive producer Kevin J. Anderson told the magazine.
“We wanted to make sure it was a story where it could take place and not just be a one-off episode.”
“A.,I.” will also see the arrival of “The” protagonist, who will also act as the voice of A.D. in the series.
“There are definitely some elements of the storyline that will tie in to the original story that are really great,” Anderson added.
“The story is about her journey to find the truth, to find her father, and to find out what she’s really made of.”
“An AI will be the central player in the story, and I think it’s going to be very interesting to see how that’s going,” he added.
The first “A.”
episode, “The Last One,” will premiere on Dec. 17 on the CW.
“When the AI was created, it had no idea of the complexities of life.
She had no understanding of how people interacted, what they valued,” Anderson told EW.
“And we wanted to really explore that.
The fact that she was an AI at the beginning, and she’s still a child at the end, she’s got to learn to interact with humans and learn from her mistakes.”
The next “A.,” “The Next One,” and “The Final One” episodes will premiere next spring on Fox.
The CW has also revealed that it will premiere “The Black Mirror” episode, titled “A Tale of Two Cities,” on Nov. 18, which will include a new character.
The “Black Mirror” franchise has garnered more than 50 Emmy nominations and won two Emmys, including best drama series.
In January, it was announced that CBS Television Studios, the studio behind “The Big Bang Theory,” will be producing the new “A.’s” series, which also will air on the network.
