NBC said the new television show, “The Gilded Age,” will be an “epic tale of the princes of the American Renaissance, and the vast fortunes they made — and spent — in late 19th century New York,” the New York Times reported.
Fellowes will continue to produce the popular 'Downton Abbey' series for PBS.
In a released statement, he said “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.”
NBC did not say when the program would air.
Meanwhile, 'Downton' fans were happy to learn this weekend that the program was renewed for a fourth season. It currently airs in the UK on ITV, and the third season will start airing in the US on Jan. 6. on PBS, Entertainment Weekly wrote.
