Only five days to go until exciting new Fox television series Lucifer premieres in the US, starring our brilliant TOM ELLIS in the titular role.
A loose adaptation of both the character created by Neil Gaiman for comic book series The Sandman and its DC Comics spin-off series Lucifer written by Mike Carey, Lucifer tells the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar (TOM) has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A., where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub. Charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome, Lucifer is enjoying his retirement, indulging in a few of his favorite things – wine, women and song – when a beautiful pop star is brutally murdered outside of Lux. For the first time in roughly 10 billion years, he feels something awaken deep within him as a result of this murder. Compassion? Sympathy? The very thought disturbs him – as well as his best friend and confidante Maze, a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman, and LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker. As they work together to solve the pop star’s murder, Lucifer is intrigued by Chloe’s apparent purity and begins to wonder if there’s hope for his own soul yet.
At the same time, God’s emissary, the angel Amenadiel (DB Woodside) has been sent to Los Angeles to convince Lucifer to return to the underworld…can the Devil incarnate be tempted toward the side of Good, or will his original calling pull him back toward Evil?
Lucifer premieres on Fox on Monday, January 25th at 9:00pm Pacific Time. For UK viewers, the series will be made available on Amazon Prime Instant Video shortly after episodes air on Fox in the United States. Check out the trailer below to see TOM in action:
