Sky Italy’s #1 scripted series launch in nearly a year – ahead of both Chernobyl and The New Pope – Devils has already been renewed for a second season.
The series centres on Massimo Ruggero, a charismatic and fearless Italian banker. With a stellar track record on the London trading ﬂoor of investment powerhouse, NYL Bank, Massimo is a shoo-in for promotion to vice-CEO. But when Massimo’s ﬁercest rival turns up dead, Massimo finds himself under suspicion, and uncovers a vast political game plan orchestrated by the devils who rule the world’s financial fate.
Devils’ cast includes Black Reel nominee Malachi Kirby (Roots, Black Mirror), BAFTA nominee Laia Costa (Victoria), and International Emmy winner Lars Mikkelsen (House of Cards, The Witcher).
Emmy nominee Nick Hurran (Sherlock) directs two-thirds of the series, with Emmy and BAFTA winning cinematographer Neville Kidd (Sherlock, Outlander) behind the camera.Cinematographe calls it “a story of power, secrets and deceptions at the center of a financial thriller as taught as a violin string.”
