Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti will star in the pilot for the new Showtime series “Billions,” Variety reported Friday.

Lewis, who spent three seasons on the Showtime series Homeland, a role for which he won an Emmy in 2013, will play a New York hedge fund manager, and Giamatti will play his rival in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Divergent director Neil Burger will direct and Ocean’s Thirteen screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien have teamed up with New York Times business reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin to write.

The show is set to begin production early next year.
