What is Devils about?
Set in London in 2011, the series follows Massimo Ruggeri, the Head of Trading at one of the most prestigious investment banks in the world, and whose success “has all but guaranteed his promotion to vice-CEO,” according to the official Sky Atlantic synopsis.
However, when Massimo’s private life is rocked by a scandal involving his wife, the event also “puts a brake on Massimo’s ambitions, leading his American CEO and mentor, Dominic Morgan, to withdraw his support” and back a more conventional old-school candidate for the role instead.
The synopsis continues: “Massimo takes this rejection hard, and things go from bad to worse when his rival and apparent successor suddenly dies, and Massimo becomes the prime suspect. Sensing that Dominic is hiding something, Massimo sets about clearing his name and finding out the truth behind the vast political game plan he has inadvertently been caught up in.”
