Devils, the original series produced by Lux Vide and Sky Italia, in association with Orange Studio and OCS, Sky Studios and distributed worldwide by NBCUniversal Global Distribution, will have a premier screening at MIPCOM, the prestigious industry event held at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes from 14 to 17 October. The screening is a new confirmation of the capacity of the Italian show to win the international market.
On the red carpet are expected: Alessandro Borghi, who stars as the young and ambitious Massimo Ruggero; Patrick Dempsey, who plays the role of Dominic Morgan, CEO of NYL Investment bank; Kasia Smutniak, who stars as Nina, Dominic’s charming wife. The event will also feature directors Nick Hurran and Jan Maria Michelini.
Based on the best-seller by Guido Maria Brera, Devils is a financial thriller set in 2011 at the dawn of the European financial crisis. Massimo Ruggero (Alessandro Borghi) is a charismatic and courageous Italian banker, his successes allowed the bank to earn millions of dollars, and to be eligible for a promotion as Vice-CEO. However, a sudden scandal puts a stop to his ambitions, also pushing his CEO and mentor, Dominic Morgan (Patrick Dempsey) to withdraw his support.
Helped by a journalist-hacker, Massimo tries to redeem his reputation and, in doing so, discovers that he is in the middle of an intercontinental financial war that crosses the five continents but that has its roots in a place very close to home.
After the presentation of the conspiracy thriller at the Los Angeles Screenings in May, the premier at MIPCOM in Cannes is another important milestone, which confirms the great attention and appreciation of the international market towards the Lux Vide series.
