The CW has added another international show for its fall schedule. The network, which seems to be [currently] mostly well-known for its DC lineup, has picked up Sky Italia’s original Devils.
Due to Devils being an hour-long, Two Sentence Horror Stories and Dead Pixels will move away from their previously announced timeslots. The CW acquired this financial thriller from NBCUniversal Global Distribution. Devils will air on Wednesdays at 8pm during its fall schedule ahead of the Canadian import Coroner.
Two Sentence Horror Stories will move to the summer schedule and Dead Pixels will move to Sunday nights.
Devils stars Patrick Dempsey, who has expressed enjoying working on the international show:
“Everyone’s making their own projects from France to Italy, they’re no longer just waiting for the American market so I think it’s really important that we start collaborating internationally and use [our] visibility to cross-pollinate. It’s an incredible time because there are so many stories to be told, depending on which country you’re from with young filmmakers and writers.”
In Devils, Dempseys stars alongside Alessandro Borghi and Kasia Smutniak. Devils is based on the best-selling novel written by the Italian trader Guido Maria Brera. It’s a ten-part series based in the London office of a major US bank. Borghi plays the “ruthless” Head of Trading Massimo Ruggero, who has been welcomed and introduced into banking by Dempsey’s Dominic Morgan – who is the bank’s CEO. Things go awry when Ruggero is involved in an intercontinental financial war that is taking over Europe. It’s at that point the two must choose to either ally with each other or fight.
The CW is looking for completed series to make up its fall line-up, considering everything had to be shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
