New US series for Damian Lewis

2014-10-26_0204Homeland‘s Damian Lewis and Emmy winner Paul Giamatti will star in Billions, a Wall Street drama for Showtime.

The fictional drama takes a close look at the world of high finance by tracking the approaching collision between two titanic figures — the hard charging, whip-smart U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes (Giamatti), and the brilliant, ambitious hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis).

It is written and executive produced by Brian Koppelman and David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin, and directed by Neil Burger (Divergent).

Lewis will also be seen in the BBC miniseries Wolf Hall, while Giamatti has a recurring role on Downton Abbey.

    Thanks David. I really enjoyed him in Band of Brothers, Life and, of course, Homeland so I’ll look out for this.

    Minor nitpick – if you’re going to mention that Giamatti is an Emmy winner, prob should do the same for Lewis (also a Golden Globe).
