Axe Capital is headquartered in Westport, Connecticut near many other hedge funds, but the actual set of the office is in Orangeburg, New York. According to Variety, it’s the former office building of Olympus Surgical & Industrial America, “an offshoot of the camera giant that had been sitting empty for years before location scouts found it for the “Billions” pilot shoot in 2014.” The industry paper also reports that the computer terminals in the office were donated by Bloomberg financial news service.
Orangeburg is also a film location for Orange is the New Black, which uses an abandoned portion of the Rockland Psychiatric Center for the outside of the prison.
