by Eric Johnson | Recode | July 19, 2018
On the latest episode of Recode Media with Peter Kafka, filmmaker and writer Brian Koppelman talks with Kafka about co-creating the hit Showtime series “Billions.” He talks about his writing process, the show’s intense commitment to detail — including its frequent visits to real-life New York restaurants — and whether he thinks the viewers of “Billions” are watching for the characters or for “wealth porn.”
Below, we’ve posted a lightly edited full transcript of the conversation.

Cheering on England Amongst the Crowd
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | July 14, 2018
Sporty summer continues! Damian was in the crowd of 27,967 spectators at Lord’s Cricket Ground watching England face India in the second game of three-match One Day Internationals (ODI) series on Saturday, July 14, 2018 in St. John’s Wood, London. It appears Damian sat in the top tier of the JP Morgan Media Centre which is equipped with radio and television commentary boxes. Watch a little fun jabbing between Damian and the commentator in this video here.
Damian just might be a lucky charm because England won today by 86 runs. It was a slightly subdued finish to the match, with England coming out clear and deserved winners in the end. This win levels the series 1-1, with the decider taking place on Tuesday at Headingley.

We Are Celebrating 12 Years!
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | July 13, 2018
Can you believe it has been 12 years? How amazing is it that a fansite has survived that long? Well it is no surprise to us, as it’s a testament to Damian’s fan base and our not-so-little community that continues to grow every day. Fansites come and go, rarely making it past the average lifespan of four years. But we are different here at damian-lewis.com for three reasons: 1) Damian does not have an official website, 2) we get a little help from him endorsing the website on his social media profile, and 3) YOU.
Here’s our special message with love and gratitude to the fans who launched the website and ran it for years, to our wonderful readers and to Damian for constant inspiration!
Thank you to those who supported and visited us over the years, through the passing of the torch as the site got handed down, from one generation to the next. We cannot express our gratitude enough to all those who poured their hearts and souls into the site these 12 years. Our mission is to preserve their legacy and keep up the good work. This site is our baby!
Not too long ago I was asked if damian-lewis.com was an official website. I answered, “We are twofold. We provide fan-related services but also serve as the primary source for accurate news and information as it relates to Damian, sometimes two steps ahead of major media outlets. So are we official? No. But we sure run the site like it is, without advertisements even!” So I like to say we are somewhere in between. We are the unofficial, yet formally legit website because we have an in-depth knowledge of all things Damian, absolute dedication, unquestionable standards and a substantial social media presence.
If you’re wondering how this fansite came to be, here’s a little bit of our history: damian-lewis.com originated as an off-shoot of the Damian Lewis Yahoo! Group (DLYG), an online fan community that started in September 2001 during the HBO broadcast of Band of Brothers. A few years later a Coppermine gallery was developed to house the group’s expanding collection of images and on July 13, 2006 this fansite launched in order to pull together some of the group’s scattered pages and keep better track of the news and content produced by Damian’s fan community.
So cheers to all of you and thank you for celebrating 12 years with us here at damian-lewis.com. We look forward to many more!
