NEW YORK, NY - October 15, 2015 - Today, SHOWTIME released the poster art for its powerful new drama series BILLIONS, premiering Sunday, January 17th at 10 p.m. ET/PT on-air, on demand and over the internet. Starring Oscar(R) nominee and Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) winner Paul Giamatti (John Adams) and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis (Homeland), BILLIONS is a 21st-century examination of the profit and peril of chasing the American dream. Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star.

For a sneak peek at BILLIONS, and to watch a behind-the-scenes look of this photo shoot, go to:
BILLIONS is a bold, contemporary drama that melds the worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, BILLIONS weaves a complex, intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey. The pilot was directed by acclaimed director Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Divergent), who also serves as an executive producer.
