[via press release from HBO]

"THE GILDED AGE," FROM OSCAR, EMMY AND GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER JULIAN FELLOWES, COMES TO HBO AS A DRAMA SERIES

The Award-Winning DOWNTON ABBEY Team Of Fellowes, Gareth Neame And Michael Engler Reunites For THE GILDED AGE

THE GILDED AGE

HBO Drama Series - 10 Episode Production Commitment

Logline:

The American Gilded Age in 1885 was a period of immense economic change, of huge fortunes made and lost, and the rise of disparity between old money and new money, which is being reflected again today. Against this backdrop comes young Marian Brook, the orphaned daughter of a Southern general, who moves into the home of her rigidly conventional aunts in New York City. Accompanied by the mysterious Peggy Scott, an African-American woman masquerading as her maid, Marian gets caught up in the dazzling lives of her stupendously rich neighbors, led by a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife struggling for acceptance by the Astor and Vanderbilt set. Will Marian follow the established rules of society, or forge her own path in this exciting new world that is on the brink of transformation into the modern age?

Credits:

Creator/Writer/Executive Producer: Julian Fellowes

Executive Producer: Gareth Neame

Director/Executive Producer: Michael Engler

THE GILDED AGE is a co-production between HBO and Universal Television.

Casey Bloys Quote: "Given the opulent scope and scale of this richly textured character drama, HBO is the perfect home for 'The Gilded Age,'" says Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming. "We're all huge fans of Julian and I know I speak for Bob Greenblatt - who was involved in the development of this series while at Universal Television - when I say we're thrilled to bring his undeniable genius to our viewers."

Julian Fellowes Quote: "I feel very privileged to be making "The Gilded Age" with HBO and Universal Television. It has been a dream of mine for some time, as I am fascinated by this brutal and intensely glamorous period of America's history. It will be about ambition, of course, and envy and hatred and, perhaps most of all, about love. I hope people will enjoy the series. I know I will enjoy making it."

Gareth Neame Quote: "I'm thrilled that HBO and Universal Television will be bringing "The Gilded Age" to life. This is a compelling part of the American story and has remarkable parallels with the world we live in as these people set many of the wheels in motion that drive us today."
