About the Show

Billions is a contemporary drama that explores worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Damian Lewis).

Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, Billions weaves an intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey.

Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star.

Billions is created, written and executive produced by Brian Koppelman & David Levien (Ocean's Thirteen, Rounders) & Andrew Ross Sorkin (Too Big To Fail). The pilot was directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Divergent), who also serves as an executive producer.

Broadcast Notes

The first season aired first-run in South Africa on M-Net Edge. When the channel became defunct in March 2017, the show moved to M-Net from Season 2.
