Tv Events | Paris | 04/08/2019

Devils , the international financial thriller, produced by Sky Italia and Lux Vide, in association with Orange Studio and the participation of OCS, funded by Sky Studios and distributed internationally by NBCUniversal Global Distribution, will have its World Premiere TV Screening at MIPCOM 2019, the biggest event on the international TV calendar.

The world's entertainment content market MIPCOM takes place in Cannes, France from 14th-17th October with Devils set to have its world premiere at the Palais des Festivals on Monday 14th October.

Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair) plays Dominic Morgan, the American CEO of an international investment bank and one of the most powerful men in global finance; Dempsey will be in attendance and will present the exclusive first look alongside Alessandro Borghi (Suburra, Romulus & Remus: The First King), who plays the lead character Massimo Ruggero, the ambitious Head of Trading. Joining them will be Kasia Smutniak (Loro, Perfect Strangers) who stars as Dominic Morgan’s glamorous wife, Nina, and the director Nick Hurran (Altered Carbon, Sherlock).

Based on the best-selling novel by Guido Maria Brera, Devils is a financial thriller set in 2011 on London’s trading floors. Massimo Ruggero (Borghi), a charismatic and fearless Italian banker, has enjoyed a stellar winning streak at investment powerhouse, the NYL Investment 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 and mentor, Dominic Morgan (Dempsey), to withdraw his support.

The sudden death of a colleague sees Massimo becoming the prime suspect for his murder. Sensing that Dominic is hiding something, Massimo sets about clearing his name and finding out the truth behind who set him up. As he fights to clear his name helped by a hacker-journalist (Laia Costa), Massimo discovers he’s in the midst of an intercontinental war that’s being played out across continents and against the chaos of the financial crash, but which has its roots much closer to home.

Laurine Garaude, Director of Reed MIDEM’s Television Division, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the premiere of this fast-paced thriller with a truly international cast as part of the much-anticipated World Premiere TV Screenings. As a global showcase platform, MIPCOM offers the opportunity to discover the hottest fresh content with the World Premiere TV Screenings representing a special selection of exceptional series screened for the first time, and open to all participants and press.”

Jane Millichip, Chief Commercial Officer of Sky Studios said: “Devils is a thoroughbred European thriller with tremendous international appeal, thanks to great storytelling by Lux Vide and Sky Italia, strong partnership of Orange Studio, and fabulous casting. We are grateful to Laurine Garaude and Reed MIDEM for selecting Devils for this year’s World Premiere TV Screening.”

Starring alongside Borghi, Dempsey, and Smutniak are Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen (The Killing, House of Cards), Laia Costa (Victoria), Malachi Kirby (Roots), Paul Chowdhry (Live at the Apollo), Pia Mechler (Everything Is Wonderful), Harry Michell (Chubby Funny) and Sallie Harmsen (Blade Runner 2049).
