It’s the series Lucifer. The premise of the series is that the Devil decides to take a vacation from Hell and lands in Los Angeles.
At the beginning of the series he’s rather dickish – which one would expect of a devil if one in fact existed. I think I’ve posted before the idea of Satan, hell and the like was lifted by Christianity directly from the Zoroastrians of Persia.
But the series is interesting. He pines for the female detective – and when she finally shows up drunk he doesn’t have sex with her. He’s the one who stops it. He’s becoming more human.
And the angel Amenadeil – he’s been put in charge to make sure nobody escapes from Hell whilst Lucifer is having a good time on Earth. But the angel goes a bit too far – he knows Lucifer is now becoming mortal and he tells Lucifer that some thug is going to kill him and it’s back to hell Lucifer goes.
Just because I’m an atheist doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the play of good vs. evil in this.

I’ve followed it for several seasons now and love it, especially this most recent season with a very grown up Tom Welling (Smallville) in a major role.
Tom Ellis – right? Yum.
that sounds amusing. Some would say Satan moved to LA decades ago and hasn’t left yet.
