Steve McQueen casts star for his HBO pilot

Codes of Conduct is described as a provocative exploration of a young African-American man's experience entering New York high society, with a past that may not be what it seems.

Terrell will star as Beverly Snow, a young man from Queens who is as talented as he is ambiguous. His self-confidence enables him to break into the social circles of Manhattan's elite, testing the boundaries of access and social mobility. Throughout the series, Beverly's ability will grant him access to a life larger in every way than the one to which he was born. His chameleon-like approach to life will test his nerve as he takes his future into his own hands.

"I needed to find an extraordinary actor," McQueen said of casting the lead. "Although you're trying to find something you recognize, it's more about finding something you're surprised by. Devon had this quality. It was no easy task casting the character of Beverly Snow and, with the help of HBO, we left no stone unturned. This was a 10-month intense process in which we came across many talented actors, but only one Beverly."
