Sky has announced that the hotly anticipated series, The Gilded Age, is coming to Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW on January 25th.
The series reunites writer/creator Julian Fellowes, executive producer Gareth Neame and director Michael Engler, the creative team behind both the award-winning Downton Abbey series and feature film.
The stellar ensemble cast includes Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Denée Benton, Louisa Jacobson, Taissa Farmiga, Blake Ritson, Simon Jones, Harry Richardson, Thomas Cocquerel, Jack Gilpin, with Cynthia Nixon and Christine Baranski. First look images have also been revealed.
The American Gilded Age was a period of immense economic change, of great conflict between the old ways and brand new systems, and of huge fortunes made and lost. Against the backdrop of this transformation, the story begins in 1882 with young Marian Brook (Louisa Jacobson) moving from rural Pennsylvania to New York City after the death of her father to live with her thoroughly old money aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Christine Baranski) and Ada Brook (Cynthia Nixon).
