Showtime has released the first teaser for “Billions,” its drama about the cost of the American dream. It stars Paul Giamatti as U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades, a character who is dead set on investigating the devilishly charming billionaire hedge-fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis). The series also stars Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad.
“Billions” is written and executive produced by Brian Koppelman and David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin. Neil Burger, who directed the pilot, also serves as an executive producer. The series is set to premiere in 2016. Production on the 12 one-hour episodes will soon begin in New York.
