In financial thriller Devils, Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy) plays Dominic Morgan, the American CEO of an international investment bank, while Alessandro Borghi (Suburra) is ambitious head of trading Massimo Ruggero.
The drama is set in 2011 on London’s financial trading floors. Charismatic and fearless Massimo has enjoyed a wealth of success and promotion to vice-CEO is near certain. However, when Massimo is involved in a scandal involving his drug-addicted wife, Dominic withdraws his support. Then when he is suspected of murdering a colleague, Massimo sets about clearing his name and finding out who set him up.
In this DQTV video, Dempsey and Borghi reveal more about the story, their characters’ father-son relationship and why the 10-part series offers a fresh perspective on the global financial crisis of the last decade.
Directors Jan Michelini and Nick Hurran also offer their thoughts on how they brought energy to the project, which is based on the novel by Guido Maria Brera, and sought to create a grand stage for the international story.
Devils is produced by Sky Italia and Lux Vide, in association with Orange Studio, for Sky across Europe and Orange in France, and distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.
