News: Alex Garland's Sci-Fi Series Devs Gets Pilot Order From FX

FX has given a pilot order to Alex Garland's (Ex Machina, Annihilation) sci-fi television series Devs. Garland wrote the pilot episode and will also be directing it. He will also be serving as an executive producer. DNA TV and Scott Rudin Productions will also executive produce.

“In Devs, which will be produced by FX Productions, a young computer engineer, Lily, investigates the secretive development division of her employer, a cutting-edge tech company based in San Francisco, which she believes is behind the disappearance of her boyfriend.” 

 Garland's most recent feature film Annihilation hit theaters on February 23rd, and stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. 

Garland recently announced that the 8 episodes that he has written for Devs tells a complete story, but it could be carried on. He said that:

“If they (FX) want to carry it on, I guess they could… it’s a self-contained story though. There’s ways you could carry it on. Hopefully shooting in about six months. I’ve started talking about casting, locations, practical stuff like that.”
