HBO’s Downton Abbey creator has offered a sort of prequel to his star-show.
The Gilded Age is set to premiere on January 24 with an extra long first episode.
Is The Gilded Age based on a true story?
Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey, has cooked up a new show: The Gilded Age on HBO.
While characters are fictional, the setting is not.
The historical drama depicts the lives of high society New York City in the late 1800s – often coined ‘The Gilded Age.’
The era was marked by growing wealth inequality.
The word, ‘gilding,’ is the process of applying a thin layer of gold over a less valuable material to make it look more luxurious.
The fictionalized characters represent real society back then, during a period of time where not everything was as perfect as it was made out to be.
