SHOWTIME(R) PICKS UP NEW DRAMA PROJECT "BILLIONS"

Network Orders Its First Pilot Of The Year From Andrew Ross Sorkin, Brian Koppelman And David Levien

NEW YORK, NY - (March 13, 2014) - SHOWTIME has ordered BILLIONS, a new complex, contemporary drama pilot from a script by Andrew Ross Sorkin (Too Big To Fail), and Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Ocean's Thirteen, Rounders), who will also executive produce. BILLIONS is a fictional drama that focuses on the collision and, at times, collusion between an aggressive U.S. attorney in New York and some of the richest hedge fund billionaires in the country. BILLIONS marks the first pilot pick-up for SHOWTIME this year.

Andrew Ross Sorkin is an award-winning journalist and author. He is a columnist for The New York Times and co-anchor of Squawk Box, CNBC's signature morning program. He wrote the best-selling book Too Big to Fail: How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System - and Themselves (Viking, 2009), which chronicled the events of the 2008 financial crisis. He served as a co-producer of HBO Films' adaptation of his book in 2011. Sorkin is also the founder and editor-at-large of DealBook, an online daily financial report published by The Times that he started in 2001. He often appears on NBC's Nightly News, The Charlie Rose Show, Real Time with Bill Maher and many others.

David Levien and Brian Koppelman have written, directed and produced a number of critically-acclaimed projects including Rounders, Runaway Jury, Ocean's Thirteen, The Girlfriend Experience, Runner Runner - all which they co-wrote, and Knockaround Guys and Solitary Man, which they wrote and directed. Levien and Koppelman also served as producers on The Illusionist, Interview With The Assassin and The Lucky Ones. Levien has authored several novels including Wormwood, Swagbelly: A Novel For Today's Gentleman, City Of The Sun, Where The Dead Lay and Thirteen Million Dollar Pop. Koppelman is a regular contributor to Grantland, and also hosts the podcast "The Moment with Brian Koppelman."
