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.
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.
