Billions synopsis and other details
Right before the premiere of the ongoing season of the show, Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount Media Networks, stated,
"Billions has deftly explored power, money and greed in a way that not only made it a massive hit, but also defined its own genre thanks to the creative brain trust of Brian and David.
"This final season is packed full of the incredible, complex dialogue and character dynamics fans have come to love, and we are thrilled to partner with them on turning this hit series into a global franchise."
The synopsis of the show, according to Rotten Tomatoes, reads,
"Wealth, influence and corruption collide in this drama set in New York. Shrewd U.S. attorney Chuck Rhoades is embroiled in a high-stakes game of predator vs. prey with Bobby Axelrod, an ambitious hedge-fund king. To date, Rhoades has never lost an insider trading case -- he's 81-0 -- but when criminal evidence turns up against Axelrod, he proceeds cautiously in building the case against Axelrod, who employs Rhoades' wife, psychiatrist Wendy, as a performance coach for his company."
It further states,
"Wendy, who has been in her position longer than Chuck has been in his, refuses to give up her career for her husband's legal crusade against Axelrod. Both men use their intelligence, power and influence to outmaneuver the other in this battle over billions. The high-profile cast is led by Emmy winner Paul Giamatti ("John Adams") as Chuck Rhoades."
The long list of the show's executive producers includes Brian Koppelman, David Levien, Christian Soriano, Andrew Ross Sorkin, and Neil Burger. It is primarily shot in New York City.
