Yes, yes, give us all the Patrick Dempsey. McMore!
Last year, we heard that Dempsey had landed his first major TV role since leaving "Grey's Anatomy." That crime mini-series, "The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair," will premiere in the U.K. on September 4, with Epix handling the U.S. release at some point in 2018.
That's per Deadline, which also shared scoop on Dempsey's next series role. It's another international project. Dempsey and Italian star Alessandro Borghi ("Suburra") will lead the cast of the new financial-world thriller series "Devils."
"Devils" is based on the best-selling novel by Italian trader Guido Maria Brera. Here's more on the show, per Deadline:
"[T]he anticipated ten-part English-language series will be set in the London office of a major U.S. bank, where the ruthless Head of Trading, Massimo Ruggero (Borghi) from Italy, has been welcomed and introduced to the world of finance by Dominic Morgan (Dempsey), the bank’s CEO. When Ruggero ends up involved in an intercontinental financial war rocking Europe, he has to choose whether to ally himself with his mentor or fight him. The book was partly inspired by the financial crisis that swept global markets in 2008."
The 10-episode series is meant to take 24 weeks to shoot, starting September in London and Rome. It sounds like a heavenly time to film in two stunning cities, despite the devilish title.
"Devils" comes from Sky Italia ("The Young Pope") with co-funding and international distribution from Sky Vision.
"This is the first Sky Italia Original that Sky Vision will co-fund and distribute internationally," said Moreyba Bidessie, Scripted Acquisitions Manager of Sky Vision, in a statement to Deadline, "and is testimony to continuing the drive to create world class, premium television that Sky Vision is proud to be a part of. 'Devils' is a brilliantly heady mix of thriller and conspiracy and how the seduction of power can corrupt even the strongest of bonds."
Stay tuned for more details on "Devils." In the meantime, here's the Sky Witness trailer for "The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair," which premieres in the U.K. September 4:
