If you're eager to see Emmy-winners Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis in a contentious battle of will and egos, or just want to watch them chew up scenery like a couple of wild barking dogs -- well, look no further than Showtime's new Wall Street-centric drama "Billions."

In a fresh batch of new promos for the cable series, we see Giamatti as U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades, a politically motivated dynamo who overzealously sets his sights on a crooked hedge fund billionaire named Bobby Axelrod (Lewis). The cast also includes Maggie Siff (Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), David Costabile (Breaking Bad) and Toby Leonard Moore (Netflix's Daredevil).

"Billions" is created and written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, the screenwriting team that penned the cult poker classic "Rounders" and the smash hit "Ocean's Thirteen." It was also created by Andrew Ross Sorkin, the TV financial reporter who wrote the 2009 non-fiction bestseller "Too Big to Fail."

"Limitless" and "Divergent" helmer Neil Burger directs the pilot episode, which is set to premiere next month, Sunday, January 17th.

synopsis:
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 (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Damian 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.
