Sky have announced that production of the second series of international financial thriller Devils is underway in Rome.
Four years have passed since Massimo Ruggero managed to thwart Dominic Morgan’s plan against the Euro, but he paid a high price: Sofia’s death. Massimo, now NYL bank’s new CEO, has appointed a group of Chinese investors to the board who are waging a silent war against the United States to rule over the tech sector.
Acquisition after acquisition, Massimo will discover a pattern where the data of millions of people is collected, used and fought over by the two sides. Becoming NYL’s strongest opponent is Massimo’s old mentor: Dominic Morgan. Progressively Massimo becomes aware of this silent battle, but it will be in 2020 when the global pandemic hits that this war will come into the light and Massimo will finally have to choose which side to take.

Filming for the second series is ongoing in Rome and London.
Devils is produced by Sky Italia and Lux Vide in collaboration with Sky Studios, Orange Studio and OCS.
The series mixes fiction with ‘fragments of reality’ and is based on the bestseller The Devils by Guido Maria Brera (published by Rizzoli). It’s story of the silent but devastating war affecting the Western world over the last decade – one fought with the most powerful of weapons: finance.
The eight episode second series will air in the UK launch on Sky Atlantic.
