M-Net (channel 101) will feature the start of the series Billions titled on June 9, 2020, at 22h00.

The stakes are in the billions in this provocative drama starring Golden Globe-winners Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis as two men caught in a struggle for justice, power and money.

Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), a sincere but ruthless US attorney, engages in an egoistic battle with hedge fund kingpin Bobby 'Axe' Axelrod (Damian Lewis) as they try to outdo each other in the competitive financial market.

The first series is titled The New Decas. Billions tells the story of hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod, its main protagonist, as he accumulates wealth and power in the world of high finance. Axelrod's aggressive tactics to secure high investment returns frequently cross over into the illegal; acts which United States Attorney Chuck Rhoades attempts to prosecute. A large ensemble secondary cast supports the series story arcs in a dynamic, thematically, between law enforcement and private enterprise.
