Brian Percival, who directed the British upstairs/downstairs show’s pilot, will direct the film.
British actress Michelle Dockery, who receives the Variety Icon Award at TV drama festival Canneseries in Cannes, Southern France on Saturday, spoke at a masterclass earlier in the day about her career and roles in TV series like “Downton Abbey,” “Good Behavior” and “Godless.” Dockery said that even when she was a child she was […]
“Letty is the sort of character that feels like she can do anything,” Michelle Dockery says. “She’s fearless like that.” Look at the roles the British actress has on the horizon, and it’s clear she and her Good Behavior alter ego have that in common. After six seasons as Lady Mary on Downton Abbey, Dockery signed on to play Letty — a recovering addict and unrepentant thief who hooks up with a hitman (Juan Diego Botto’s Javier) while hoping to someday give her son, Jacob (Nyles Julian Steele), a “normal life.” She remembers the TNT drama’s creator, Chad Hodge, and director of its 2016 pilot, Charlotte Sieling, wrote a manifesto.
Maria Doyle Kennedy ('Orphan Black') and Ed Speleers ('Wolf Hall') have signed on for key roles for the fourth season of Starz's 'Outlander,' which began filming this week in Scotland.

"Downton Abbey" ended with happy endings for almost all of the characters. So, what would the movie be about? We’ve got ideas for all of the major characters!
Victoria came to the throne at the age of 18 and apparently nursed a crush on her adviser, Lord Melbourne, as who would not, since he’s played here by Rufus Sewell at his most hunky-polite. Based on the historical novel by Daisy Goodwin, this production seems to strive for a cross between Gossip Girl and Downton Abbey, and is thus an amusing trifle. Wearing a crown that looks like a gigantic, bejeweled wedding cake, Coleman’s Victoria is alternately shrewdly clever and melodramatically emotional.
Easily one of the most entertaining productions Netflix has ever streamed, The Crown is a royal soap opera on a grand scale. Lavishly produced by creator-writer Peter Morgan, the drama is one of Netflix’s most expensive series to date, and it features fittingly lavish performances — most prominently by Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth and Doctor Who’s Matt Smith as her husband, Philip Mountbatten. The 10-part series, which begins streaming Friday on Netflix, delves into more British backbiting, snobbiness, and snippiness than a season’s worth of Downton Abbey.

War and Peace: Leo Tolstoy As A YA-Novel Writer I would not recommend that any student assigned to read Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace using the BBC version premiering on American TV Monday night as a cheat-sheet substitute. When you bring up the incest subplot, your teacher will know you’ve not been doing the required assignment.
Half of Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards show will give prizes to TV shows—a wide range of shows, most from cable and streaming outlets, few from the major networks. There are a lot of big names and big talent involved. Here are my predictions for who will win. Please feel free to add your own predictions to mine in the comments section.
In other words, Betty Grissom, who liked “clever food,” made the cheese porcupine and very much appreciated the meatloaf cupcakes. The Bachelor franchise has a long, glorious history of featuring dates where contestants ignore beautifully-arranged plates of food, but on this summer’s guilty pleasure Bachelor in Paradise, contestants Joshua and Tenley did get to indulge in a true culinary treat. Francisco Ruano, the chef at Restaurant Alcalde, plied the duo with scallops ceviche, braised local beef, and some kind of fancy cheese-based dessert.
The arrival of another Independence Day has us thinking of the TV characters (and, in some cases, actors) we’d like to see declare their independence from shows that don’t always properly value their contributions.
Two "Empire" recurring characters recently got the upgrade to series regulars. Here are some of the other familiar faces we'd like to see receive a similar promotion.
