Sky Series Guide: "Devils" – economic thriller series from Italy

We present current series highlights at Sky – in addition to well-known long-running favorites, we also take a look at upcoming new releases. The Italian prestige project “Devils” is about heaven and hell, and its story is about the aspired rise of the charismatic and fearless banker Massimo Ruggero (Alessandro Borghi).


He seems to be on a lucky streak at the moment because his efforts are generating hundreds of millions of dollars in his bank’s earnings, which could be a factor in his promotion. But a scandal over his drug addict wife ruins his career and Massimo finds himself involved in an international intrigue. He comes into conflict with the American CEO Derek Morgan (Patrick Dempsey) who has his own plans with the London-based NYL bank. It is the year 2011 and the world financial crisis is in full swing …

Based on the bestselling novel “I Diavoli” (2014) by Guido Maria Brera, the ten-episode economic thriller series creates the image of a dazzling, shady world full of intrigue and power games and reconstructs the mechanisms and triggers of the then debt crisis in the form of a hidden economic war between Europe and the USA.

While main actor Allessandro Borghi (“Suburra”) enjoys great popularity in Italy, series connoisseurs, his American colleague Patrick Dempsey, will be known from “Grey’s Anatomy”. But also her co-stars, the Danish Lars Mikkelsen (“The Ways of the Lord”), the Spanish Laia Costa (“Victoria”), the Dutch Sallie Harmsen (“Blade Runner 2049”) and the German Pia Mechler (“Everything Is Wonderful ”) radiate great authenticity and increase the tension and quality of international large-scale production.

The series is available linearly on Sky Atlantic HD and on the call portals Sky Ticket, Sky Go and Sky Q – here even in the best UHD resolution.
