What Is Devs? Creator Alex Garland Explains FX's New Sci-Fi Show

Devs is a new miniseries from FX, streaming on Hulu. We talked with Alex Garland, the creator, writer, and director of Devs to learn more about the sci-fi thriller.

Devs is centered around Lily Chan (Sonoya Mizuno), a software engineer at a silicon valley tech company called Amaya. Lily investigates the mysterious Devs division of Amaya, which she believes is behind the murder of her boyfriend. Devs also stars Nick Offerman as Forest, the CEO of Amaya, and Alison Pill as Katie, Forest's second in command.

This sci-fi thriller is created, written, and directed by Alex Garland, who also wrote and directed the films Annihilation and Ex Machina, and wrote the screenplays for 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd, among others. We spoke with Garland to learn more about the new limited series. Garland explains what Amaya and the Devs division are working on, the characters and their motivations, what scientific research went into writing the show, the unique set design, and why Dark Souls made an appearance in the show. Devs is streaming now on FX on Hulu.
