What is Billions About
With big money scandals and corruption more and more in the public eye, it’s no wonder that the wheeling and dealing of the business world
Billions star Paul Giamatti (John Adams, Sideways) as Charles “Chuck” Rhoades, Jr., U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who engages in a cutthroat battle against wealthy criminals, primarily focused on ambitious hedge fund phenom Bobby Axelrod, played by Damian Lewis (Homeland, Wolf Hall). In season six, Lewis departs and a new target rises in Mike Prince (Corey Stoll). Maggie Siff (Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy) costars as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck Rhoades wife and a psychiatrist and performance coach at Bobby’s company, and Malin Åkerman (The Comeback) plays Lara Axelrod, Bobby’s wife.
The show started loosely based on the legal battles between real-life former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and S.A.C. Capital Advisors hedge fund manager Steve Cohen, as well as on the career of Eliot Spitzer, and over the seasons, has incorporated references to high-profile cases dealing with market manipulation and high power bond trading into a glossy tale of wealth and influence. Of course, the heightened stakes of any good premium cable drama.
In addition to its prestigious leads, Billions has no shortage of powerful recurring stars, including Condola Rashad as Assistant United States Attorney Kate Sacker, and Asia Kate Dillon as Axe Capital analyst Taylor Amber Mason—also the first non-binary regular character on mainstream North American television. The guest star lineup has included Anthony Edwards, Mary-Louise Parker, Danny Strong, Clancy Brown, John Malkovich, Janeane Garofalo, and Danny Strong.
The stylish show definitely leans into its setting of wealth and power. Still, unlike many programs that feature lavish lifestyles in glamorous, desirable detail, Billions creators and designers focus on the cold power struggle underlying luxury life. The homes and offices may be elegant, but they are cold, slick, aggressive, meant to intimidate rather than relax. These are people to whom money is literally no object, who take it for casual granted—but who fought hard to get it, and not always cleanly.
