Billions is the story of Chuck Rhoades, Jr. (Paul Giamatti), US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and his epic struggle with hedge fund investor and dashing rogue, Bobby 'Axe' Axelrod (Damian Lewis).

They don't so much play three-dimensional chess as they do five-dimensional Othello, with great swathes of friends, loved ones, and audience understanding of events being overturned from one side to the other. If you like shows with a good guy and a bad guy, we don't have either of those. But if you like complicated characters aggressively figuring things out at one another, you've found your show.

Billions ran for seven seasons and originally aired on Showtime from 2016-2023. It can currently be found on Paramount+ and Amazon Prime.
