You remember Damian Lewis (Nicholas Brody) from Showtime’s critically acclaimed series, Homeland? Well, he’s back to Showtime, but this time his character has nothing to do with spies or terrorists. Instead, he plays an ambitious and very successful Hedge fund manager named Bobby Axelrod.
Titled Billions, the series follows the story of U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) who goes after hedge fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod in a battle between two powerful New York figures.
The series also stars Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad.
The series is written and executive produced by David Levien, Brian Koppelman, Andrew Ross Sorkin and Neil Burger.
Billions is set to premiere sometime in 2016.
