Patrick Dempsey has admitted that his financial thriller series Devils was "really challenging" to make.

Reflecting on his experience shooting Devils, Dempsey told Digital Spy: "I think the whole process was really challenging and being patient with so many different dynamics, with the different countries we were shooting in, with our approach in London and then in Rome and then the international flavour of the cast.

"It was really wonderful to work with everyone and discovering everybody's approach and creating an environment that was safe for everybody.

"The most challenging part was at the beginning, and then once we established that it was really so much fun because the atmosphere within the cast on the stage was really exciting."

Asked how he thinks fans will feel after the season one finale, the 55-year-old went on to suggest: "Hopefully they feel something, that there's an emotional response based on the dynamic in those finale scenes. And get ready for season two.

"It's really exciting to see where we're going and what we're tackling, and the themes that we're getting into are really exciting."

Devils season one begins tonight (February 17) at 9pm on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
