A major new drama series from Alex Garland, Devs, is setting up to film in the UK for FX.
The eight-episode project marks the TV drama debut of the writer/director (pictured), best known for Ex Machina and Annihilation.
In Devs, a young computer engineer – played by Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina, Crazy Rich Asians) – investigates the secretive operations of her San Francisco tech company employer, whom she believes is responsible for the murder of her boyfriend.
