Nils Hartmann is an executive producer of The CW’s “Devils,” a conspiracy thriller for Sky Studios starring Patrick Dempsey and Alessandro Borghi.
As Director of Original Productions at Sky, Hartmann has overseen the making of international television series such as the “Gomorrah” franchise, the political trilogy “1992,” “1993” and “1994,” “The Young Pope” by Academy award winner Paolo Sorrentino as well as its successor, “The New Pope” (starring Jude Law and John Malkovich), and “ZeroZeroZero” by “Gomorrah” showrunner Stefano Sollima.

With 25 years’ experience in television production under his belt, Hartmann is currently also executive producer of the Italian editions of “X Factor,” “Masterchef” and “Italia’s Got Talent.” He joined Sky Italia back in 2003 for its launch in the role of Creative Director, after helping set up the Studio Universal movie channel as Creative Manager in Rome, where he had previously started out as Promo Producer at Orbit Network upon successfully completing a Master at the London International Film School.
Born in Hannover, Germany in 1967, Hartmann grew up in Milan, Italy, and is now mainly based there again, working out of Sky’s Italian Headquarters.
