DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, January 2018) NBC is proudly entering "The Gilded Age." For those missing the Dowager Countess' condescending glares or the evening ring of the dinner bell, there's a new Julian Fellowes drama on tap at NBC that brings an upstairs/downstairs tale Stateside. The network is teaming with the acclaimed writer and executive producer Gareth Neame, the creative forces behind the hugely popular PBS series "Downton Abbey," for a 10-episode series order that will begin in 2019. The series will be produced by Universal Television and executive produced by Fellowes and Neame. Fellowes, who is an Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe-winning writer, was honored with an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special and was nominated three other times. On the film side, Fellowes won an Oscar in 2002 and was Golden Globe nominated for his screenplay of "Gosford Park." The Gilded Age in 1880s New York City was a period of immense social upheaval, of huge fortunes made and lost, and of palaces that spanned the length of Fifth Avenue. In the series, Marian Brook is the wide-eyed young scion of a conservative family who will embark on infiltrating the wealthy neighboring family dominated by ruthless railroad tycoon George Russell, his rakish and available son Larry, and his ambitious wife Bertha, whose "new money" is a barrier to acceptance by the Astor and Vanderbilt set. Marian is about to experience a whole new world springing up right outside her front door.
