The long-gestating drama The Gilded Age from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellows has announced some of its cast. They include Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon and Amanda Peet.

Baranski will star as Agnes van Rhijn, a proud and stubborn aristocrat who will never accept that the world has changed, and that ancient values are being replaced by new ones. Nixon will play Ada Brook, another victim of the collapse of the old south, but unlike her sister Agnes, she never found a way to get out until it was too late, and she was forced back on her sister’s charity. Peet will appear as Bertha Russell, who comes from the ordinary middle-class. She backed her instincts when she set out to catch her husband George, the son of a merchant family who has proved to be a financial genius. She is determined to use her money and position to break into a society that resists change at every turn. (Variety)
