Premieres Tuesday, June 23 at 10:30 P.M. ET/PT on Comedy Central
The original out of touch reality family is coming to Comedy Central in “Another Period,” a turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series that follows the insanely ridiculous and debaucherous life of the Bellacourts, who have more servants than relatives and whose days are filled with money, sex, drugs and more money. The ten-episode debut season, co-created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome and executive produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour, will premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following all-new episodes of “Inside Amy Schumer.”
Before others claimed their fame, there was one American family that stood for all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid. Meet the Bellacourts – Newport, RI’s First Family of the Gilded Age. They have tons of money, live in a big-ass mansion and employ a whole team of Fonzworth Bentleys. However, the Bellacourts’ servants have to do a lot more than hold umbrellas. “Another Period” centers on the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian (Leggero) and Beatrice (Lindhome), who only care about being rich and becoming super famous (which is a lot harder in 1902).
Lauren Ash, Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, Christina Hendricks, Brian Huskey, David Koechner, Jason Ritter, David Wain and Armen Weitzman will appear alongside Leggero and Lindhome. Guest stars for the series’ first season include Matt Besser, Jack Black, Jon Daly, John Ennis, Kate Flannery, Rich Fulcher, Tim Heidecker, Moshe Kasher, Lauren Lapkus, Thomas Lennon, Kate Micucci, Chris Parnell, Lou Diamond Phillips, Missi Pyle, Will Sasso, Betsy Sodaro, Shoshannah Stern, Stephen Tobolowsky and Brian White.
In the series premiere episode, Lillian and Beatrice prepare to entertain a Newport power broker, played by guest star Thomas Lennon, and Chair (Christina Hendricks) gets used to her new life and new name in Bellacourt Manor.
