Synopsis:
A lavish nine-part series about the life and times of the child born Nancy Langhorne in Danville, Virginia, on 19th May 1879 who would become the first ever woman to take her seat in the House of Commons. Her story begins in post-civil war Virginia and follows Nancy through a disastrous teenage marriage to an arrogant and conceited playboy and finds her divorced and a single mother by the time she is 24. Only a move to England offers a way out of her misery. Witty and charming, Nancy becomes the focus for the country's most eligible bachelors, including the man she takes as her second husband, Waldorf Astor - one of the richest men in the world.
Moving into the lavish stately home, Cliveden, Nancy enjoys life as a prominent hostess for the social elite, but when Astor surrenders his seat in the Commons for a place in the Lords, a door opens that will seal Nancy's place in history forever. More than just a biography, this epic series is a compelling story of rags to riches, romance and heartache.
