The Showtime series Billions has returned to Westchester County for filming. Today, the production filmed at Yonkers City Hall, 40 S. Broadway. Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano tweeted how great it was to catch a picture with Damian and fellow castmate Condola Rashad.

The series has been seen filming continuously in Yonkers which is fitting considering Damian Lewis’ character (Bobby Axelrod) grew up in the city. Scenes for prior seasons have also been filmed at Empire City Casino and Glenwood power station. In years past the show has also been seen filming at Rye Playland, in Orangeburg and White Plains.

by Staff | Los Angeles Times | January 1, 2020

Television … now more than ever: To paraphrase the satirical film studio slogan of Robert Altman’s “The Player,” TV’s dominant mode these days is the avalanche, the deluge, the endless binge. But even amid the clutter of 500-some scripted and countless unscripted series, there’s plenty to be excited about, including originals from nascent (or still-to-be-launched) platforms like Apple TV+, HBO Max and Quibi. Let the Times TV team help you plan your viewing schedule with this list of our 20 most anticipated new and returning shows of 2020.

Billions

The searing drama about the high-stakes battle between federal government watchdog Charles Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and cocky billionaire Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis) incorporated a clever twist in its fourth season when Axe became consumed with destroying his former protégé, Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillion), who left him to form their own hedge fund firm. In a complicated scheme, Axe blackmailed Taylor and wiped them out, forcing them to return to Axe’s firm. Though Taylor is chastened, they vow to work from within to take down Axe and Rhoades, setting up another lethal war. Upping the ante are Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife”) and Corey Stoll (“House of Cards”), who join the cast. (Showtime, TBA) —Greg Braxton
