The first official teaser trailer for the Sky original production, Devils, has been revealed starring Alessandro Borghi (The First King: Birth of an Empire, Suburra) and Patrick Dempsey (The truth about the Harry Quebert Affair). Filmed between Rome and London, the teaser provides a preview of a story about finance, power and disenchantments.
Alessandro Borghi is Massimo Ruggeri, the ruthless and ambitious Head of Trading of one of the most important investment banks in the world, the New York – London Investment Bank (NYL); Patrick Dempsey plays Dominic Morgan, one of the most powerful men in global finance, Massimo’s mentor and CEO of the bank. Their deep bond, however, begins to crack when Massimo gets involved in an inter-continental financial war, due to Dominic’s hidden agenda. Eventually, the Italian Head of Trading will be forced to choose between standing behind his mentor or stopping him.
The series, based on Guido Maria Brera’s bestseller “I Diavoli”, is a Sky Italia and Lux Vide production financed by Sky Studios, in collaboration with Orange Studio and OCS. NBCUniversal Global Distribution holds the international rights.
Kasia Smutniak (Loro, Perfetti Sconosciuti) is Nina, the sophisticated and strong-willed wife of Dominic Morgan. She is joined by a wider international cast including: Lars Mikkelsen (The Killing, Sherlock, House of Cards), Laia Costa (Victoria), Malachi Kirby (Roots), Paul Chowdhry (Live at the Apollo, Swinging with the Finkels), Pia Mechler (Everything Is Wonderful), Harry Michell (Chubby Funny) and Sallie Harmsen (Blade Runner 2049).
Devils is directed by Nick Hurran (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Fortitude, Altered Carbon) and Jan Michelini (I Medici). The series is written by Alessandro Sermoneta, Mario Ruggeri, Elena Bucaccio, Guido Maria Brera, Chris Lunt, Michael Walker, Ben Harris, Daniele Cesarano, Ezio Abate and Barbara Petronio.
Devils will debut on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK this summer, and is part of Sky’s increased investment in original production through the recently launched Sky Studios, a new Europe-wide development and production capability.
