Devs is an American drama thriller TV miniseries that premiered on March 5, 2020 on Hulu, as part of FX on Hulu. The series revolves around Lily (Sonoya Mizuno), a computer engineer investigating a quantum computing company called Amaya, run by Forest (Nick Offerman). She believes Amaya is responsible for the disappearance of her boyfriend.
On March 13, 2018, it was announced that FX had given the production a pilot order. The pilot screenplay was written, directed and executive produced by Alex Garland.
On August 3, 2018, it was announced during the Television Critics Association’s annual summer press tour that FX had decided to bypass the pilot process and instead were giving the production a straight-to-series order consisting of eight episodes. Additional executive producers include Andrew Macdonald, Allon Reich, Eli Bush, and Scott Rudin.
In November 2019, it was announced the show would premiere on Hulu instead of FX, as part of “FX on Hulu”.
At the New York Comic Con, Garland explained his reasoning behind the creation of the series: “I read more about science than anything else, and it started with two things. One was getting my head around this principle of determinism, which basically says that everything that happens in the world is based on cause and effect…That has all sorts of implications for us. One is that it takes away free will, but the other is that if you are at a computer powerful enough, you could use determinism to predict the future and understand the past.”
Japanese-born British actress, model and ballet dancer Sonoya Mizuno plays the lead role Lily. Sonoya has collaborated with director Alex Garland in works such as Ex Machina and Annihilation prior to Devs. She has had minor roles in the films La La Land, Beauty and the Beast, and Crazy Rich Asians. Mizuno also played a lead character in the Netflix miniseries Maniac.
American actor, writer, comedian, producer and carpenter Nicholas Offerman portrays the role of Forest. He is best known for his role as Ron Swanson in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, for which he received the Television Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy and was twice nominated for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
