The Devil has come to Los Angeles…Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint, Lucifer is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar 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, Mazkeen aka Maze, a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman.
Tom Ellis, a veteran British TV actor in his first lead role, plays the title character as a walking smarm bomb, delivering his every line with a smoothly hedonistic charm. Lucifer appears aware of how absurd its premise is, but it doesn’t wink at the audience. Instead, Ellis portrays Lucifer as someone who treats most of existence as a big joke, yet he’s intrigued by humanity’s mysteries and genuinely cares about a few of the people he meets. That dynamic—amused disbelief, followed by fascination and actual emotional investment—is pretty much what Lucifer is banking on from its audience, as the sheer audacity of its premise enables the show to dig into big philosophical ideas rarely kicked around on network TV.--Alasdair Wilkins, A.V.
