The cable series is an epic drama set in the 1880s about New York City's wealthy tycoons. It's a collaboration between HBO and Universal Television, with the former handling international sales.

The series begins in 1882 with Marian Brook (Louisa Jacobson) traveling from rural Pennsylvania to New York City to live with her completely aged aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Christine Baranski) and Ada Brook (Cynthia Nixon). Accompanied by aspiring Peggy Scott (Denée Benton), Marian gets involved in the high society of the Gilded Age and soon discovers the corruption and greed that come with living among the elite.

Marian's aunts are members of The Women's League, which is fighting for the right to vote, and they introduce her to their friend Delphine Beaumond (Carrie Coon), an woman who has made a fortune in the garment industry. Together, they all explore the thrilling and sometimes dangerous world of New York City in the 1880s.

The series also stars Matt Letscher as Henry Russell, the head of the family that employs Peggy; James Cromwell as Samuel van Rhijn, Agnes and Ada's tyrannical father; and David Strathairn as Bishop Henry Potter.

The series has been met with mixed reviews, but it is clear that there is an audience for it. In its premiere week, The Gilded Age averaged 7.5 million viewers across all platforms, including linear and digital viewership. With a second season on the way, it will be interesting to see if the series can continue to grow its audience.
