Syfy has announced that they’ve greenlit a new series called Devil May Care. This series will star Alan Tudyk as the Devil who hires Beans (voiced by Asif Ali) to be his social media coordinator to “rebrand Hell as the ultimate place to live, and the two form the most unlikely of friendships.” This sounds like a crazy show. Pamela Adlon, Stephanie Beatriz, and Fred Tatasciore will have recurring roles on the show as Regina, Gloria, and President McKinley respectively. Devil May Care has been given a seven episode order and will be part of Syfy’s TZGZ programming block.
Devil – Impulsive and excitable, Devil needs to impress and be liked and just wants everyone in there to be happy in his rebranded Hell.
Beans – Inexperienced yet opinionated, Beans has no idea why he’s in Hell as Devil’s social media coordinator.
Regina – Conflicted with old succubus ways and new domestic position, Regina has no limits sexually and uses that seductively to get what she needs from men.
Gloria – Here to serve, Gloria is the Head Demon of Hell who’s helpful to those she likes and condescending to those she d oesn’t.
President McKinley – A man with no patience for fools, McKinley is the “Devil’s Advocate,” doing anything Devil needs to get done.
In addition to Devil May Cry, SYFY has also given the green light to three additional pilots:
From ShadowMachine (“Final Space,” “BoJack Horseman”), CHRONICLES OF FRANK follows an overzealous squirrel that kidnaps an exterminator from the Bronx, transporting him to a magical realm where he must conquer the forces of evil and maybe win back his girlfriend. Ordered for a 15-minute pilot, CHRONICLES OF FRANK is created and executive produced by Chris Osbrink (Writer/Director, “Trip Tank,” Writer/Director, “Campus Law”), with ShadowMachine executive producers Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley.
In a galaxy far, far away there’s an epic war of the worlds where countless alien species will fight to the death – and THE BLACK HOLE is about the crappy dive bar where they drink. Picked up for a 15-minute pilot, THE BLACK HOLE from Starburns Industries (“Rick and Morty,” “Moral Orel”) is written and executive produced by Dino Stamatopoulos (Creator, “Moral Orel”) and Michael Waldron (Producer, “Rick and Morty”). Paul Young (EP, “Key & Peele”), James A Fino (EP, “Rick and Morty”), Duke Johnson (Director, “Anomalisa”) and Nick Weidenfeld (President of Programming, Viceland) also executive produce.
Heavy is the belly that wears the suit in THE POLE, a twisted, edgy comedy about the struggle for power on the North Pole. From Yeti Farm Creative (“Hotel Transylvania” Season 2, “Pete the Cat” Season 2), THE POLE has been ordered for a 15-minute pilot. Created and executive produced by Matthew Bass (Writer, “Future Man”) and Theodore Bressman (Writer, “Future Man,” Writer/EP, “Jungleland”). Mark Gordon (Producer, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Ray Donovan”) also executive produces, as well as Frank Saperstein and Jay Surridge from Yeti Farm Creative.
