The pair will also introduce their shows, “Billions” with Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, and “Twin Peaks” with Kyle MacLachlan.

“I am delighted that David Nevins and Armando Nuñez will share their insight into what it takes to produce premium drama series for today’s market. And we are thrilled that CBS has decided to give the MIPCOM audience an early look at ‘Billions,'” said Laurine Garaude, Reed MIDEM’s television division topper.

An Emmy-winning producer, Nevins’s credits include such critically-acclaimed series as “Arrested Development,” “24,””ER” and “The West Wing.” Nevins will be elevated to president and CEO of Showtime Networks on Jan. 1.

Nuñez, CBS’s top international executive, oversees CBS Studios International, which has 13 offices worldwide and is responsible for distributing programming from CBS Television Studios, CBS Television Distribution, Showtime, CBS News and CBS Films and a library of more than 70,000 hours.

“Billions” will bow on Showtime on Jan. 17.
