David Levien

Pitting a profit-driven hedge fund manager against a power-hungry U.S. Attorney, and making the fictitious scene seem shockingly lifelike, is a weekly work of art on Showtime’s BILLIONS. David Levien, one of the show’s creators and showrunners, makes it look effortless. What’s the secret sauce, four seasons in? The devil is in the details. This week’s episode is a lesson in character building, location scouting, and defying the odds - all straight out of the Bobby Axelrod playbook.
