Fellowes creates ‘Gilded Age’ for NBC

Show will examine wealthy class of 19th century New York

Julian Fellowes, the creator of Brit hit and Stateside phenomenon “Downton Abbey,” is bringing his next series to NBC.

“The Gilded Age” will examine those who made their fortunes in late 19th century New York.

Said Fellowes: “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.”

Fellowes will continue his work on “Downton Abbey,” which will make its third season debut in January on PBS and has been renewed for a fourth, while simultaneously exec producing “The Gilded Age.”

Show will be produced by Universal Television.

“Having been thoroughly impressed by Julian’s wit, eloquence, vast historical knowledge and collaborative nature in my past development experience with him, I’m thrilled to be continuing our relationship at Universal Television,” said studio topper Bela Bajaria.
