I have been a supporter of PBS for several years. I recently decided to help sponsor Downton Abbey. The series is shot in an actual castle by the name of Highclere Castle. I love old castles!
The all-star cast including Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess of Grantham, returns and welcomes guest star Academy Award®-winner Shirley MacLaine. Written and created by Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey is a Carnival Films and Masterpiece co-production.
Downton Abbey is on our local PBS 39 station here in Fort Wayne. Season 3 Premiere begins on January 7, 2013. Cathy Edwards from PBS told me about this series and it sounded like an excellent series to support. Lady Catherine and I are members of the Anthony Wayne Rotary Club in Fort Wayne so she keeps up to date with changes at PBS.
I have been catching up on Seasons 1 and 2 on Sunday evenings. I am totally hooked on this great series. I hope that many of you will also enjoy Downton Abbey.
