Damien Lewis stars as Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod, a man with eff-you money in Showtime’s new series, Billions. He’s also the one link to three different companies that seem to be causing ‘trading irregularities’ – and about to face the wrath of U.S. Attorney, Chuck Rhoades, played by Paul Giamatti.
The series revolves around the two men as it blends the worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption. Check out the intense trailer (NSFW for language) after the jump.
BILLIONS is a bold, contemporary drama that melds the worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, BILLIONS weaves a complex, intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey.
