Billions is a complex drama about power politics in the world of New York high finance. Most seasons plot lines are "ripped from the headlines" by mirroring real-life prosecutions of financial crime by federal authorities. 

The series was inspired by the investigations undertaken by Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017, from which Giamatti's antagonist originates.

 The Southern District's prosecution of hedge fund manager Steve Cohen of S.A.C. Capital Advisors in 2013 loosely influenced the first season while Salomon Brothers' manipulation of U.S. Treasury bonds in 1991 inspired the second season.
