Eleanor Bourg in “Devils”
Pia Mechler stars as Eleanor Bourg, a strikingly beautiful, confident German woman who is used to getting what she wants, and intimidates men, in the series “Devils” on The CW. Eleanor resents not being named Head of Trading, not just with Massimo (Alessandro Borghi), but also with new recruit, Zhi (Li Jun Li). She feels the job should be hers, Zhi disagrees and wants to motivate Eleanor to prove herself, but her attempts will be far from easy. Despite everything, Eleanor does not hesitate to prove her loyalty to Massimo. But when Massimo sets out a new path, will she help him fight the new war? Will she be still Massimo’s right hand?
