Greedy. Corrupt. New money. Hungry for fame. Sound familiar? Newport, RI’s first family, the Bellacourts, are back with the third season premiere of Another Period on Tuesday, January 23 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. The third season of the turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series, co-created by and starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, directed by Jeremy Konner and executive produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour, follows the fifth season premiere of Drunk History.
Now in its third season, Another Period tells the incredible story of the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice (played by Leggero and Lindhome), who are defined by their family’s wealth and care only about becoming super famous – which is a lot harder in 1902. The series follows the insanely decadent and outrageous life of the Bellacourt coterie which, before others claimed their own fame, were the one American family who epitomized all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid – with more servants than relatives and days filled with money, sex, drugs…and more money.
In the upcoming season, The Bellacourts’ fight for suffrage in congress, become some of America’s first female Olympic athletes, deal with an opioid addiction and campaign to make America great again, for the first time.
Another Period was co-created by and stars Leggero and Lindhome, who also serve as writers, and is directed by Konner (Drunk History). The series’ executive producers are Leggero, Lindhome, Konner and Red Hour’s Ben Stiller, Debbie Liebling, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein.
