From the creators of fan-favorite show Downton Abbey comes a new period drama, The Gilded Age. As the title suggests, this one takes place during America’s gilded age, when new inventions were booming and new money was growing. The Gilded Age takes place in New York City in the 1880s. While it was to originally air on NBC, its new home is HBO Max, where it will have a premiere on Jan. 24.
With a star-studded cast that includes Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Carrie Coon and many more, The Gilded Age hopes to be just as successful as Downton Abbey, if not more so.
The creative team involved with the show include creator/writer/executive producer Julian Fellowes, executive producer Gareth Neame, director/executive producer Michael Engler, executive producer David Crockett, director/executive producer Salli Richardson-Whitfield, and writer/co-executive producer Sonja Warfield.
