‘Just two more weeks left of principle photography on #thegildedage,’ director Salli Richardson Whitfield wrote on Monday.

The Gilded Age

The Gilded Age is a term used to describe the prosperous years in American history post Civil War.

Unprecedented growth in technology and industrial activity gave way to greed and corruption.

Wealthy tycoons, bankers and politicians created extraordinary wealth at the expense of the working class. 

The elite grew rich through the monopolies they created in the steel, petroleum, and transportation industries, according to Britannica.

Notable tycoons included John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Leland Stanford and J.P.Morgan. 

Fellowes’ new show is described as ‘a sweeping fictional epic of the millionaire titans of New York City,’ according to Deadline.  

‘It’s been an amazing adventure to not only direct but executive produce this beautiful show. #julianfellowes and #hbo thank you for believing in me.’ 

Louise Jacobson plays heroine Marion Brook who,, moves from Pennsylvania to be with her aunts in New York after her the death of her father, a Civil War general in the Union army.

‘Following the tradition of Downton and Belgravia, the new series explores the lives of the fabulously privileged, and those less so, at a time, during the late 19th century, when America became more prosperous and saw unprecedented growth, thanks to the rise of transcontinental railways and huge advances in industrial technology,’ Baz Bamigboye wrote for DailyMail.com.

The Gilded Age also stars Harry Richardson as the Harvard-educated son of wealthy neighbors, portrayed by Morgan Spector and Carrie Coon, and is described as ‘a sweeping fictional epic of the millionaire titans of New York City,’ according to Deadline.

Julian Fellowes’ latest endeavor is years in the making after he began working on a Downton Abbey spin-off in September 2012. 

Fellowes told RadioTimes.com in January 2016 the he was ‘hopefully shooting at the end of the year’ despite not having written the script just yet.  

When asked about the status of the show in June 2016, Fellowes admitted he was ‘up to my neck in research’ creating the characters.

‘These people were extraordinary. You can see why they frightened the old guard, because they saw no boundaries,’ he told The Los Angeles Times

‘They wanted to build a palace, they built a palace. They wanted to buy a yacht, they bought a yacht. And the old guard in New York weren’t like that at all, and suddenly this whirlwind of couture descended on their heads.

The union musicians – whom the cable network initially fired – are now guaranteed appropriate pay, benefits, and other protections for their services.

‘The producers of the HBO miniseries The Gilded Age hired a large group of accomplished musicians, well-versed in the musical style of the period, to give their show authenticity,’ AFM International President Ray Hair said in a statement. 

‘When our musicians realized they were not working under an AFM contract, they stood up to a global media company and made them do the right thing. 

‘HBO will now be prevented from bullying musicians into accepting substandard wages, benefits, and conditions.’
