Per a summary provided via Deadline: “Despite society and the world as we know it having collapsed, a massive, automatic product-manufacturing factory continues to operate according to the principles of consumerism – humans consume products to be happy, and in order to consume continuously, they must be denied freedom of choice and free will. When a small band of rebels decide to shut down the factory, they discover they may actually be the perfect consumers after all.” Monáe will be portraying Alexis, an Autofac representative.

Peter Horton (Grey’s AnatomyAmerican Odyssey) will direct the episode written by Travis Beacham (Pacific RimClash of The Titans).
