The Devil Goes Down to Los Angeles in First "Lucifer" Trailer

Soon after announcing that "Lucifer" had been ordered to series, Fox debuted the first trailer for the show, offering a first hint of the tone and direction of the series.

Written by Tom Kapinos ("Californication") and directed by Len Wiseman ("Underworld"), the pilot stars Tom Ellis ("Once Upon a Time," "Doctor Who") as the Lord of Hell who, bored and unhappy, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles. There, he gets his kicks helping the police punish criminals.

Ellis is joined by Lauren German as Det. Chloe Dancer, Rachael Harris as Kim Martin, DB Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze, Nicholas Gonzalez as Dan and Scarlett Estevez as Trixie.

The project hails from Warner Bros. Television, DC Entertainment and Jerry Bruckheimer Productions. Kapinos and Wiseman will executive produce alongside Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ildy Modrovich. While Kapinos developed the project, based on the Vertigo series written by Mike Carey and illustrated by Peter Gross, Ryan Kelly and Dean Ormston, Deadline reported that "White Collar" and "Almost Human" Co-Executive Producer Joe Henderson will serve as showrunner for the series.
