Season 1

Billions is a contemporary drama that examines the profits and perils of chasing the American dream.

In the sexy, ego-driven world of high finance, two of New York's most powerful titans are locked in an epic battle.

Tenacious U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) wields the power of the justice system with purposeful authority.

Ruthlessly brilliant hedge fund king Bobby 'Axe' Axelrod (Damian Lewis) rules an empire built on inside information and dirty backroom deals.

Axe is driven to win at all costs but Chuck will do anything to make the self-made billionaire pay for his crimes.

It's a high stakes war where each is forced to answer the question: What is power worth?

Billions weaves a complex, intricate narrative that moves seamlessly between the private and professional lives of Chuck and Axe.

Maggie Siff stars as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck's whip smart, ambitious wife who is caught between her husband's convictions and her professional role as an influential member of Axe's inner circle.

Malin Akerman stars as Lara Axelrod, Axe's fiercely loyal, street-smart wife.

Toby Leonard Moore (Daredevil), David Costabile (Breaking Bad) and Condola Rashad (Money Monster) 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.
