See the first trailer for Comedy Central turn-of-century series 'Another Period,' produced by Ben Stiller

Posted on

Comedy Central

Rich, vain and stupid is no way to go through the life. And apparently few did it in 1902 better than the Bellacourts, a wildly wealthy Newport, Rhode Island family who sullied the Guilded Age with equal parts ostenatiousness and delusion.

Premiering June 23 at 10: 30 p.m., Comedy Central’s Another Period is a turn-of-the-century series that chronicles the exploits of sisters Lillian (Natasha Leggero) and Beatrice (Riki Lindhome, who co-created the show with Leggero), who are hungry for Kardashian-style fame. The show counts Ben Stiller and Drunk History co-creator Jeremy Konner among its executive producers, and Christina Hendricks, Jason Ritter, David Wain, Michael Ian Black, Brett Gelman and Paget Brewster among its cast. Which character will say, “What I lack in brains, I make up for in incest”? Press play on this promising trailer to be transported back to a horrific and absurd time in our nation’s history.
