Created by Emmy and Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes (“Downton Abbey”), “The Gilded Age” chronicles life in New York in the late 1800s during a period of immense economic change.

The cast also includes Jeanne Tripplehorn, Taissa Farmiga, Blake Ritson, Simon Jones and Harry Richardson.
The series was recently renewed for a second season by HBO.
The season one DVD includes all nine episodes, plus featurettes such as “Inside the Episodes,” “Who’s Who,” “Old Money vs New: The Heart of the Matter,” “Invitation to Set,” “Carrie Coon BTS,” “Writing Peggy” and the DVD-exclusive “All That Glitters: Creating ‘The Gilded Age.’”
