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.
