Showtime has signed executive producers and writers Brian Koppelman and David Levien to an overall deal, under which they will continue to serve as showrunners of the hit drama series Billions while also developing new projects exclusively for the network.

Over the past two decades, Koppelman and Levien have partnered on projects across both film and television. Their credits include Rounders, Ocean’s Thirteen, Solitary Man, The Illusionist, Runaway Jury, Tilt, ESPN’s 30 for 30 (This Is What They Want), I Smile Back, The Girlfriend Experience and I Am Not Your Guru.

“Brian and David are uniquely talented creators and producers, with the ability to deliver dynamic, meaningful drama week after week that not only taps into the zeitgeist, but also redefines it,” said Jana Winograde, co-president of entertainment at Showtime Networks. “They are both wildly imaginative and able to tell stories that are emotionally grounded—a truly compelling combination. We look forward to enjoying future seasons of Billions, as well as seeing what other exciting series will emerge from their incisive minds.”
