WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Devils.

Devils is based on the novel I Diavoli by author Guido Maria Brera which came out in 2014.

Last year, the series debuted in Italy and now it’s almost time for the show to arrive in the UK.

Devils is about a psychological battle between the head of trading at fictional investment bank NYL Massimo Ruggero (played by Alessandro Borghi) and the company’s chief executive Dominic Morgan (Patrick Dempsey).

When Dominic gives another colleague a top position instead of loyal worker Massimo, this begins a bitter feud between the pair which becomes both professional and personal.

What did Patrick Dempsey find difficult about filming Devils? 

Devils originally aired in Italy as it was written by an Italian author which had been translated into English.

Plenty of the story is also set in Rome, the heart of Italy, along with other scenes in London.

There was plenty of going to and from the two countries throughout the months of filming.

This was the element that actor Dempsey found most difficult but it wasn’t because of jet lag.

Speaking to press, including, Dempsey explained: “It’s fascinating because everybody approaches the creative work differently so how do you create an atmosphere that’s safe for everybody to contribute and have a voice.

“And I think that was the biggest challenge because we were working in England, there’s a certain mentality there.

“And then when you come to Rome and with the cast being international, it’s everyone being sensitive in learning how to work together and to hear each other and we approach things differently.”

Dempsey continued: “Filming in London was really challenging for everybody, it was particularly tough on the crew.

“We would shoot one day in Rome and then be on a plane that afternoon and shooting the following day in London.

“So it was a really tough one for the crew but everyone pulled through.

Even before the drama has begun in the UK, the future of Devils has already been decided.

Devils was renewed for a second series just a few months after the drama finished airing in America.

A release date hasn’t yet been revealed but work is already underway on the new episodes.

Discussing the renewal, chief executive of Lux Vide, the production company behind Devils, Luca Bernabei said: “When you put together this kind of project, you are not fully covered [financially] and you have to trust yourself to make something with quality for it to sell internationally.

“It’s a conspiracy thriller that will hold the attention of a wide audience, but at the same time allow them to get inside the complex world of finance in an engaging way.”

Devils starts on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday, February 17.
