Find out where you can watch Poor Devil, the new adult animated program that follows a teenager who finds himself at a crossroads, choosing to follow in the footsteps of his dad, the devil, or forging his own path as a Broadway star.
For some teenagers, it can feel like parental figures are the devil in human form. When all you want to do is be on your own with no rules, parents become enemy number one. Upon growing up and out of the teenage phase, it usually becomes clear, though, that, no, your parents were not Satan.
Except in the case of Stan. Stan is the main character on the adult animated show Poor Devil. He is your average 18-year-old, except for one key differentiator. His dad is the devil. Yes, you read that correctly. Stan’s father is the Satan. And he has high expectations of his son.
While many teenagers are tasked with getting part-time jobs in retail or food, Stan’s dad has another goal for Stan. He wants Stan to go to earth, create chaos, and begin the downfall of humanity. Stan has a completely different idea of what his days and his future should look like. He wants to live the typical teenage life full of drinking, partying, and being with friends. And with big dreams of seeing his name in lights as a famous Broadway star, Stan would rather sing and dance than take down the human race.
Poor Devil takes the idea of dancing with the devil to a whole new level. Find out how Stan navigates teenagehood, pursuing his dreams of dancing and living with the literal devil on Poor Devil, streaming exclusively on HBO Max.
