Patrick Dempsey is returning to U.S. TV.
The CW has picked up Devils, an international thriller, that will air as part of the network's pandemic-proof fall schedule.
Devils is an international thriller that follows Massimo Ruggero (Alessandro Borghi, The First King: Birth of an Empire, Suburra), the charismatic yet ruthless Head of Trading at NYL, one of the world’s most important investment banks, and his mentor, NYL’s CEO Dominic Morgan (Patrick Dempsey, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair).
After Dominic appoints another colleague over Massimo following a bitter promotion battle, Massimo finds himself named prime suspect in a murder investigation.
