After the death of her father, small-town girl Marian Brook moves to new York and steps into a tempest, her snooty socialite aunt, Agnes, standing at odds with the cruel George and Bertha Russell, the ultra-wealthy new kids on the block.
The Gilded Age was a period of immense opportunity and colossal greed, which both literally and figuratively laid down the foundations of the modern Big Apple.
Written by Downton Abbey creator Fellowes, the show charts the social war between the land-owning aristocracy and a younger generation of money - and power-driven industrialists, which plays out through much curtain-twitching, raising of eyebrows, and hushed sniping behind closed doors.
Which path to fortune will Marian take? Read on as we detail how to watch The Gilded Age online where you are.
