Alex Garland's DEVS Thriller Series Picked Up By FX!
If you're a fan of Alex Garland's work, which includes Ex Machina, Annihilation and Dredd, you'll be happy to hear that his thriller series Devs was just picked up by FX.
The story follows "a young computer engineer, Lily Chan, as she investigates the secretive development division of her employer, a cutting-edge tech company based in San Francisco, whom she believes are behind the murder of her boyfriend." Sonoya Mizuno will play Lily Chan in the series and here are the additional casting and character details:
Nick Offerman will play Forest. Forest is the CEO of Amaya, whose obsession is the covert work of the company’s development division.
Jin Ha will play Jamie, a gifted cyber security specialist, who is Lily’s former boyfriend.
Zach Grenier will play Kenton. Terse, dry and dangerous , Kenton is the head of security at Amaya.
Stephen McKinley Henderson will play Stewart. Stewart is a cultured intellectual from another era and one of the top technical minds working in Amaya’s secret development division.
Cailee Spaeny will play “Lyndon,” a young, brilliant, and stubborn employee who works in Amaya’s secret development division.
Alison Pill will play Katie. Katie is a gifted quantum physicist tapped by Forest to be his second in command at Amaya.
FX has given Devs an eight-episode order and Garland serves as a writer and executive producer. Garland is one hell of a talented director with a crazy imagination and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes from this new series.
