The CW is adding another acquired series to its fall 2020 lineup.
The network has picked up the French-Italian co-production “Devils.” The series is described as an international thriller that follows Massimo Ruggero (Alessandro Borghi), the charismatic yet ruthless Head of Trading at NYL, one of the world’s most important investment banks, and his mentor, NYL’s CEO Dominic Morgan (Patrick Dempsey). After Dominic appoints another colleague over Massimo following a bitter promotion battle, Massimo finds himself named prime suspect in a murder investigation. Fighting to clear his name, Massimo becomes involved in an intercontinental financial war and is forced to choose between supporting Dominic or going up against him.
The series also stars Laia Costa, Kasia Smutniak, Lars Mikkelsen, Malachi Kirby, Paul Chowdhry, Pia Mechler, Harry Michell, and Sallie Harmsen.
The series will air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the acquired series “Coroner.” The move shifts CW’s previously announced fall schedule, with the acquired series “Dead Pixels” now likely to air this summer after previously being set for Wednesdays.
