Homeland‘s Damian Lewis returns to series TV with a starring role in Billions and today Showtime’s released the first teaser trailer for the dramatic series. The series, which doesn’t premiere until next year, also stars Paul Giamatti, Maggie Siff, and Malin Akerman. Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin are writing Billions and are executive producers on the series.
Showtime will premiere Billions in early 2016. Filming’s taking place in New York, with season one set to consist of 12 one-hour episodes.
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 (Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (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.
