NBC had come calling from across the sea for Downton Abbey’s creator, Julian Fellowes.  The mastermind of the hit British soap, which has just got its fourth season renewal, has been tapped by the peacock network to write and produce a new epic drama called The Gilded Age.

According to EW.com, NBC describes The Gilded Age as an “epic tale of the princes of the American Renaissance, and the vast fortunes they made — and spent — in late 19th-century New York. ”  In a statement on his new gig Fellowes revealed, “This was a vivid time with dizzying, brilliant ascents and calamitous falls, of record-breaking ostentation and savage rivalry …  a time when money was king.”

The third season of Downton Abbey will begin airing on January 6th in the U.S. and American fans cannot wait for the drama to unfold.  So soapers, would that The Gilded Age be a drama you might check out if it’s from the talented Fellowes? Let us know!

Asian storylines have… Read more »

‘Downton Abbey 2’: Big-Screen Sequel Announced & Coming For Christmas

So many of us loved the soap opera that was Downton Abbey when it aired on PBS and ITV for six seasons.  Then, a few years later in 2019, the highly-awaited Downton Abbey movie hit movie theatres near you.

Now comes word from Focus Features that a big-screen sequel is in the works and is slated for release this Christmas in December of 2021.

In a social media announcement, the film company shared: “We’re thrilled to announce that Julian Fellowes and the entire Downton cast are back for #DowntonAbbey2, with Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West joining! See the film in theaters this Christmas.”

While, of course, no plot has been teased or given away, Fellowes will write the screenplay, with Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) set to direct.

“There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we can’t imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, (producer) Gareth Neame and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawleys back home for their fans,” said Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawsk in a statement.
