Marian is joined by Peggy Scott (Benton), an ambitious writer looking for a fresh start when she moves in with her old money aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Baranski) and Ada Brook (Nixon). Marian drags promising writer Peggy Scott (Benton) along, and she unknowingly becomes embroiled in a social feud between one of her aunts and her new wealthy neighbours, cruel railroad tycoon George (Spector) and his wife Bertha Russell (Coon).

In a press release, HBO describes the show as beginning “in 1882 with young Marian Brook (Jacobson) moving from rural Pennsylvania to New York City after the death of her father to live with her thoroughly old money aunts Agnes van Rhijn (Baranski) and Ada Brook (Nixon). Accompanied by Peggy Scott (Benton), an aspiring writer seeking a fresh start, Marian inadvertently becomes enmeshed in a social war between one of her aunts, a scion of the old money set, and her stupendously high neighbours, a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife, George (Spector) and Bertha Russell (Coon)”.
