Watch T&C Editor Erik Maza on History Channel’s Crazy Rich Ancients Starting This Sunday

Few things are more fascinating than examining how rich people spend their money, and this Sunday the History Channel will present its new show, Old rich and crazy, offering a scoop on the richest icons of the past. This must-watch series will feature City & Country Style Executive Director Erik Maza, appearing in the episode titled “Expensive Tastes,” which airs Sunday, July 24 at 10 p.m. ET. Maza, who oversees GTC coverage of fashion, design and society, offers a compelling perspective rooted in his knowledge of good taste and his experience of chronicling society’s elite.

Each half-hour episode of Old rich and crazy will dive deep into the lives of mysterious characters throughout history, following their luxurious and bizarre spending habits. The stories that emerge are fascinating – from the Mongolian general Kublai Khan who owned around 5,000 Mastiffs to Catherine the Great, who described her passion for art collecting as almost addictive.

Old rich and crazy will also go beyond spending and obsessing, delving deeper into how these legendary icons influenced culture with their wealth and power.

But in this game of lavish spending, there can only be one winner. So who takes the cake for one of the biggest spenders in history? Well, you’ll have to look and see. Tune in to the first episode of the series, which premieres July 17 at 10 p.m. EST, and watch every Sunday until the finale on September 4.
