The drama, based on the novel The Devil: Britain’s Most Feared Underworld Taxman by Graham Johnson, has not yet been attached to a network; IDW plans to develop the script before taking the project out to buyers.

Set in Liverpool in the 1980s, The Devil centers on Stephen French, one of the most feared men in the criminal underworld in the U.K. He earned both his nickname and a reputation among rival crime lords, whom he would outwit and rob during the emerging drug trade of the 1980s.
