Another Period is a period satire show that was aired on Comedy Central from 2013 to 2018. Set in the early 1900s, it follows the stories of the Bellacourts, a wealthy and eccentric family residing in Newport, Rhode Island, who are desperate to become famous. Commodore Bellacourt, played by David Koechner, is the patriarch of the Bellacourt family, who inherited his wealth and title from his father. Despite his wealth, Commodore is not entirely happy with his life and is always on the lookout for ways to enhance his social standing. He is often caught up in schemes and is willing to do whatever it takes to maintain his family's reputation.

Lillian Bellacourt, played by Natasha Leggero, is the eldest daughter of the family, who is convinced that she is destined to become a major star. Lillian is vain, selfish, and cares only about herself. She is also constantly looking for ways to achieve fame and fortune, even if it means going behind her family's back.

Beatrice Bellacourt, played by Riki Lindhome, is Lillian's younger sister and is portrayed as the black sheep of the family. She is often ridiculed by her family members for being cynical and sarcastic. Beatrice is also the most intelligent member of the family, and she often tries to foil her sister's schemes.

Peepers, played by Michael Ian Black, is the Bellacourt family butler who is devoted to his employers. He is often the voice of reason in the often-crazy Bellacourt household. In addition to his duties as a butler, he is also in charge of the household's day-to-day operations.

Garfield, played by Armen Weitzman, is one of the Bellacourt servants who is often tasked with doing the dirty work. He is often the unwitting victim of his employer's craziness and finds himself getting caught up in their schemes.

Hortense, played by Lauren Ash, is the Bellacourt family's maid. Hortense is a strong-willed woman who is not afraid to stand up to the Bellacourts when necessary. She often provides a different perspective on the family's outrageous behaviors.

Lord Frederick Bellacourt, played by Jason Ritter, is Commodore's younger brother who is often the source of ridicule from the rest of the family. Lord Frederick is effeminate and is often portrayed as being less than masculine, which is a source of embarrassment for his family.

Victor, played by Brian Huskey, is the Bellacourt family's insane and sadistic physician. He is often seen experimenting with bizarre medical treatments and procedures on his patients, which usually ends disastrously.

Dr. Goldberg, played by Moshe Kasher, is the Bellacourts' Jewish neighbor, who is often berated by the family for his religious beliefs. He is the only source of sanity in the often-crazy town of Newport.

The show is a satirical take on the lives of the wealthy during the early 1900s, which was a time of great social upheaval in America. The Bellacourt family is a parody of the wealthy elite of the time, and their excesses are often used to highlight the social injustices of the era.

Overall, Another Period is a hilarious and irreverent take on the lives of the rich and famous in America's past. The show's excellent cast, clever writing, and over-the-top humor make it a must-watch for anyone who loves a good comedy.

Another Period is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (32 episodes). The series first aired on June 23, 2015.
