Ellen Pompeo is stepping foot into the producing side of things to explore the mind of a criminal mastermind!
The 47-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star is teaming with comic book publisher IDW Entertainment to develop a limited series titled The Devil, THR reports.
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.
