Downton Abbey

Show Premise: 

The series is set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey. It tells the story of the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era—with the great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy.

Some of the events include news of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in the first series; the outbreak of the First World War, the Spanish influenza pandemic, and the Marconi scandal in the second series; the Interwar period and the formation of the Irish Free State in the third series; and the Teapot Dome scandal in the fourth series.

The series was created by Julian Fellowes and co-produced by Carnival Films and Masterpiece. It first aired on ITV in the United Kingdom and Ireland on September 26m 2010 and on PBS in the United States on January 9, 2011 as part of the Masterpiece Classic anthology. Four series have been made so far; a fifth is planned for 2014.
