“Annihilation” and “Ex Machina” director Alex Garland’s new sci-fi limited series “Devs” has finally been given a full series order by FX. Garland will write and direct the entire eight-episode run of the series which will premiere in 2019.
The series will follow a young computer engineer, Lily Chan, whose boyfriend is murdered. She begins to investigate her employer, a cutting-edge tech company based in San Francisco, and believes the company’s secret development division are potentially behind the crime.
Sonoya Mizuno, Nick Offerman, Jin Ha, Zach Grenier, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Cailee Spaeny and Alison Pill will star in the project about which FX Networks CEO John Landgraf says: “After reading all eight scripts and hearing Alex’s brilliant vision and commitment to direct all of the episodes, it was an easy decision to order ‘Devs’ to series. Alex is a visionary artist who with his partners has put together a stellar cast.”
