DESCRIPTION:
(from Smithsonian Channel's press release, December 2015) Oscar(R), Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) nominee Elizabeth McGovern returns to host the second season of Smithsonian Channel's MILLION DOLLAR AMERICAN PRINCESSES, the acclaimed series whose first season chronicled the fascinating in-depth stories of real-life American heiresses who inspired the TV drama Downton Abbey. Premiering on Sunday, January 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the new season picks up the story in a tumultuous era in which women's lives and expectations are completely transformed. From the Belle époque in Paris at the turn of the century to Nancy Astor's mansion, Cliveden, to the sun-soaked coast of Monaco in the 1950s and '60s, viewers will see the heroines of MILLION DOLLAR AMERICAN PRINCESSES step out of their mansions and stately homes to play an increasingly vital part in the cultural and political life of Europe, blazing a trail for future generations. The new season focuses on the lives of women who are not just heiresses but also have the drive, talent and originality to make lasting contributions to art, culture and style. It explores the compromises and ultimate choices these legendary women must make between career, family and their newfound nobility. Through vivid re-enactments, dramatic on-location filming, historical documents, interviews with notable family members, contributors and experts, MILLION DOLLAR AMERICAN PRINCESSES brings to life the stories of these extraordinary women, including the romance, the heartbreak, the secrets, the scandals, and their enduring legacy.
