‘Devils’: Sky Atlantic/NOW TV Set Feb UK Premiere Date For International Thriller Starring Patrick Dempsey
Sky Atlantic & NOW TV has set a February premiere date for Season 1 of ‘Devils‘, a new Sky Original international thriller starring Patrick Dempsey (‘Grey’s Anatomy’) and Alessandro Borghi (‘Suburra’).
London, 2011. Massimo Ruggero (Borghi), a charismatic and fearless Italian banker, has enjoyed a stellar winning streak on the London trading floor of investment powerhouse, NYL Bank. Massimo’s successes have seen him make hundreds of millions of dollars for his employers; and with it, all but certain promotion to vice-CEO. However, a scandal involving his drug-addicted wife puts a brake on Massimo’s ambitions, leading his American CEO, Dominic Morgan (Dempsey), to withdraw his support, as Massimo’s fiercest rival, Edward Stuart (Ben Miles – ‘The Crown’), seemingly waits in the wings.
Massimo takes this rejection hard, and things go from bad to worse when Stuart suddenly dies, and Massimo becomes the prime suspect. Sensing that Dominic is hiding something, Massimo sets about clearing his name and finding out the truth behind who set him up. Working with his team and Sofia (Laia Costa – ‘Only You’), a hacker-journalist working for a whistle-blowing website, Massimo discovers the death of his colleague is linked to a vast, political game plan, concealed behind the Strauss-Kahn scandal, the Libyan war, and the deepening European financial crisis. Caught in the middle of a covert, intercontinental war, and facing the Devils who rule the world’s fate from the shadows, Massimo must make a stark choice: join them, or bring them down.
