In May of 2001, he founded Electric Entertainment, where he serves as chairman and CEO. The full-service film, television and worldwide sales & distribution company also houses Electric Post, a state-of-the-art digital effects and post production facility.
Electric is rapidly expanding under Devlin’s leadership. The company just announced the launch of its OTT linear channel, Electric Now, the free streaming channel available on Stirr, Xumu and DistroTV apps, and the company’s new podcast network, Electric Surge.

Additionally, Devlin is the producer and creative behind classic, highly rated television programs. He executive produced five seasons of the cult fan favorite “Leverage,” the action-packed TNT series starring Oscar®-winner Timothy Hutton. Devlin also executive-produced three “The Librarian” movies of the week for TNT, starring Noah Wyle, which led to four seasons of “The Librarians” series starring Wyle, Rebecca Romijn and John Larroquette. In 2005, he executive produced, along with Bryan Singer, the Emmy-winning “The Triangle.”
Devlin directed and produced the film “Bad Samaritan,” starring David Tennant and Robert Sheehan, and was released on 2000 screens through Electric’s distribution arm. Also under the Electric banner, Devlin produced “Flyboys,” “Eight-Legged Freaks,” “Cellular” and the critically acclaimed documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car?”.
