The Rothschilds

An original drama series co-written by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes and Ian Kelly, about the Rothschild banking dynasty, who rose from the deprivation of the ghetto to become the richest and most powerful family in history, in just one generation.

The Rothschilds is the ultimate rags to riches tale, set against the backdrop of war and revolution. It is not just a story of one family’s meteoric rise to wealth and the birth of banking, but also of European Jewry, of the struggle for survival and of triumph over antisemitism.

It is also a story about human relationships – of fraternal struggles for dominance, of brilliant but disenfranchised women, of generational conflict, of incestuous alliances and of forbidden love with outsiders.
