Another Period

Can't remember if I've mentioned this show on here before - but this is quite an amusing little sitcom from Comedy Central featuring some of the few (imho) genuinely alternative funny US comedic-types.

It's set in the Gilded Age at one of the mansions in Newport, RI and principally features the antics of the "daughters" Natasha Leggero and Ricki Lindholm, but there is a great supporting cast, including the odd appearance by the comely Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) as Chair.

Based on skewering the whole upstairs/downstairs, rich/poor manners thing it must go pretty close to the edge of what the average American finds decent.

Makes me chuckle, anyway.

Sounds good, what is the "gilded age" ?

I might be wrong, but basically the late nineteenth Century when the tycoons here were amassing great fortunes and building 50 bedroom "cottages" in places like, well, Newport.

Could it be a play on "gilded cage", which would be like in living in a luxury prison?

I suppose "Fin de Siecle" would work too.
