Again congratulations to everyone involved and read more about the pick up here and go this new and exciting road with us.

We will keep you updated with news clips and pictures during production and through the entire series and once we get closer to the premiere we will inform you largely about cast members and the characters they bring to live as well as the producers and director…we promise you a great time here:-)

Showtime has given a 12-episode series order to high-finance drama “Billions,” starring Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti.

Series revolves around politics and power in the world of Wall Street and New York investment firms. “Billions” was created by screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien and author-New York Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin, who all exec produce. Koppelman and Levien will serve as showrunners.

Production is set to begin later this year in New York for a 2016 debut.

Giamatti plays a hard-driving U.S. attorney who clashes with a hedge fund titan played by Lewis. Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star. The pilot was helmed by Neil Burger, who is also an exec producer.

Episode 101

“The dynamic star pairing of Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis is matched by an equally exciting team in the writing of this show,” said Showtime Networks president David Nevins.

Andrew Ross Sorkin, one of the preeminent financial journalists of our time, has joined forces with Brian Koppelman and David Levien, two of Hollywood’s most accomplished screenwriters, to tackle an incredibly timely and buzzy subject. With this caliber of writing and acting, I think the show’s authenticity and insider look will have great appeal to a discerning audience.”

Is money really the root of all evil?

Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti are about to find out, now that Showtime has ordered 12 episodes of Billions — which the network describes as “a complex and contemporary drama about power politics in the New York world of high finance.”

Lewis, an Emmy winner for Showtime’s Homeland, will play “brilliant, ambitious hedge fund king” Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, who’s on a collision course with the “hard-charging, politically savvy” U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades, played by Emmy winner Giamatti (John Adams, 12 Years a Slave).

Maggie Siff (Sons of Anarchy), Malin Akerman (Trophy Wife), Toby Leonard Moore (Marvel’s Daredevil), David Costabile (Suits) and Condola Rashad (Smash) round out the cast. (Siff and Akerman will play Giamatti and Lewis’ respective spouses — psychiatrist and finance-world performance coach Wendy and former nurse Lara.)

Billions, which will shoot in New York later this year and premiere in 2016, is written and executive produced by Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Ocean’s Thirteen, Rounders) and Andrew Ross Sorkin (Too Big To Fail). Neil Burger (Divergent) directed the pilot.
