In Madrid for the launch of HBO Max in Spain, Andorra, and four Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark), Warner Media’s commissioning editor and VP of original programming Miguel Salvat announced the commission of “Poor Devil,” a new series produced for the streamer by Buendia Estudios and animated by Granada’s Rokyn Animation Studios.
Stan, a typical 18-year-old, is followed in “Poor Devil,” only his father is the Devil. His father assigns the newly-minted young adult the mission of wreaking havoc on Earth and causing humanity’s demise. Stan, on the other hand, as an 18-year-old, has other ideas. Stan, like most young adults, enjoys socialising, drinking, and partying, and he aspires to be a Broadway star. In a short animatic prepared for the HBO Max premiere to advertise the series, he declared, “I want to sing and dance.”
Miguel Esteban, Joaqun Reyes, and Ernesto Sevilla wrote “Poor Devil,” which was co-written by Helena Pozuelo and directed by Esteban. Salvat has worked with several of the production’s top creatives for many years. While “Poor Devil” is director Esteban’s first animated series, he has a long list of successful comedy series under his belt, including “Nasdrovia” for Movistar Plus, “The Neighbour” for Netflix, and “The End of Comedy” for Comedy Central.
