Showtime May 2020 Original Series

BILLIONS
Season Premiere Sunday, May 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

In season five of BILLIONS, Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) see their vicious rivalry reignited, while new enemies rise and take aim. Social impact pioneer Mike Prince (new cast member Corey Stoll) poses a true threat to Axe’s dominance, and Chuck feuds with a formidable district attorney. Taylor Mason (Asia Kate Dillon) is forced back to Axe Capital, where Taylor must fight to protect their employees and their assets. Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff) reevaluates her loyalties and forges surprising new alliances that put her at odds with both Chuck and Axe. Julianna Margulies will play Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author.

PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS
Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT

Starring Natalie Dormer as supernatural demon Magda, PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.

DESUS & MERO
Mondays and Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET/PT

DESUS & MERO features hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more via virtual video conference, as well as giving their take on the day’s hot topics in their signature style. The series is currently filmed remotely from the hosts’ respective homes until further notice. Recent guests include presidential candidate Joe Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Alicia Keys, Issa Rae and the Beastie Boys.
