A buzzy new series about New York City women is coming to HBO Max… and no, I’m not talking about the Sex and the City reboot. Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes‘ new period drama The Gilded Age will premiere on the streamer on January 24, 2021. Today, HBO released the very first teaser to give you a taste of all the drama that 1880s New York one-percenters have to offer.

The series features a stacked ensemble cast, including Cynthia Nixon, Christine Baranski, Louisa Jacobson (aka Meryl Streep’s daughter), Carrie Coon, and Morgan Spector.

According to HBO Max, the series opens during “a period of immense economic change, of great conflict between the old ways and brand new systems, and of huge fortunes made and lost.”

Against this backdrop, The Gilded Age follows the penniless young Marian Brook (Jacobson), who moves from Pennsylvania to New York City after the death of her father to live with her wealthy “old money” aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Baranski) and Ada Brook (Nixon).

Accompanied by Peggy Scott (Denée Benton), an aspiring writer looking for a fresh start, Marian accidentally becomes caught in the fraught social war between one of her aunts and their “new money” neighbors, railroad tycoon George (Spector) and his equally ambitious wife Bertha (Coon). Obviously, a whole lot of power plays and elaborate balls ensue.

The nine-episode drama also stars Taissa Farmiga, Blake Ritson, Simon Jones, Harry Richardson, Thomas Cocquerel, and Jack Gilpin. The Gilded Age is created by Fellowes and Sonja Warfield. Executive producers include Fellowes, Gareth Neame Michael Engler, David Crockett, and Salli Richardson.

The Gilded Age premieres January 24, 2022 on HBO Max. Scroll up to watch the first trailer.
