Showtime has put out a behind-the-scenes video for the upcoming hedge fund drama “Billions” that debuts next year.
The 12-episode series stars Damian Lewis, who plays a hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, the CEO of AXE Capital, and Paul Giamatti, who plays US Attorney Chuck Rhoades.
“You will see your preconceptions constantly challenged — who’s good? who’s bad? And what people are prepared to do to get what they want,” Lewis said in the video.
Giamatti described the series as a “thriller” and a “cat and mouse game” between his character and hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod.
The show was written by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and New York Times editor/CNBC anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin.
It premieres January 17, 2016 at 10pm EST.
