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 Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, along with co-stars Alessandro Borghi (Suburra) and Kasia Smutniak (Loro) will be in attendance.
Based on the best-selling novel by Italian trader Guido Maria Brera, the anticipated ten-part English-language series will be set in the London office of a major U.S. bank, where the ruthless Head of Trading, Massimo Ruggero (Borghi) from Italy, has been welcomed and introduced to the world of finance by Dominic Morgan (Dempsey), the bank’s CEO. When Ruggero ends up involved in an intercontinental financial war rocking Europe, he has to choose whether to ally himself with his mentor or fight him.
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.”

We are grateful to Laurine Garaude and Reed MIDEM for selecting Devils for this year’s World Premiere TV Screening.”
