Sky Italia, Lux Vide play Devils advocate

Sky Italia has commissioned a financial thriller based on a novel by Guido Maria Brera, to be produced by local prodco Lux Vide.

Patrick Dempsey

Devils will be co-funded and distributed internationally by the European satcaster’s sales arm Sky Vision. It is the first time Sky Vision is backing a Sky Italia original in this way.

An international cast for the series will include Patrick Dempsey (Grey’s Anatomy) and Alessandro Borghi (The Place). Nick Hurran (Sherlocks, Doctor Who) will direct and showrun alongside Jan Michelini (I Medici).

Filming of the 10-part drama will start in September with shooting taking place in London and Rome.

The plot is set in the London office of a big US bank where a new ruthless Italian head of trading must decide whether to ally with the bank’s CEO or fight him, having become involved in an intercontinental financial war.

Lux Vide, the Rome-based firm behind dramas including Medici: Masters of Florence, announced plans to focus on more English-language drama late last year.
