A new TV show will follow the exploits of one of America’s most notable and wealthiest families. No, it’s not (yet another) spin-off of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” but a slightly classier version focusing on one of America’s royal families, the Vanderbilts.

The show, which will air on a German TV station, is hosted by Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin, an eighth generation descendant of the original patriarch, Cornelius Vanderbilt.

For the show, Costin took the crew to Grand Central Station (which her family built), the area underneath the Waldorf Astoria where presidents’ would park their trains, the Pine Hollow Country Club, which was the former estate of her great aunt, and also the former home of her great-great-grandfather William K. Vanderbilt II, which is now the Vanderbilt museum in Long Island.

“I’m getting to relive my family history,” Costin told the Post. “They’ve preserved the estate just as it was when he lived there.” [Page Six]
