NBC Gets “Gilded” By ‘Downton’ Creator

“Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes is bringing his deft hand at period drama to NBC.

Fellowes is developing “The Gilded Age” for the American broadcaster, a show examining how giants of industry made their fortunes in late 19th century New York.

“This was a vivid time, with dizzying, brilliant ascents and calamitous falls, of record-breaking ostentation and savage rivalry; a time when money was king” says Fellowes.

Fellowes will continue his work on ‘Downton’ while simultaneously executive producing “The Gilded Age.”
