Showtime’s got a new series in the works that’s well worth keeping an eye on called Billions. It’s being described as a complex, contemporary drama that digs deep into the world of high finance. Neil Burger (Divergent) is locked to direct the pilot early next year in New York using a script penned by Brian Koppelman, David Levien and New York Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin.
Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis will star as the show’s two main characters, a U.S. attorney and a hedge fund titan, respectively. Hit the jump for more on Showtime’s Billions.
