Billions (Showtime 2016, Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti)

In strong drama Billions U.S Attorney for Southern New York is tasked by the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate brilliant hedge fund boss Bobby “Axe” Axelrod. Rhoades isn’t keen on the investigation as there seems to be a distinct lack of evidence against Axelrod but eventually begins to believe that he can build a case against him.

Very loosely based on the real life U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara Billions scores strongest with the playing of the two leads Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti. Despite Giamatti’s character Rhoades being ostensibly the good guy it doesn’t always feel that way.

Showtime premiered the series opening episode online on 1 January 2016.
