Another Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) period drama Belgravia is in the pipeline.
The six part limited series, to be produced by Carnival Films, is a story of secrets and dishonour amongst the upper echelon of London society in the 19th Century. When the Trenchards accept an invitation to the now legendary ball hosted by the Duchess of Richmond on the fateful evening of the Battle of Waterloo, it sets in motion a series of events that will have consequences for decades to come as secrets unravel behind the porticoed doors of London’s grandest postcode.
ITV’s Head of Drama, Polly Hill said, “We’re delighted to be reuniting with Julian Fellowes, Gareth Neame and Carnival Films to produce Belgravia for ITV. It’s a tale of scandal and intrigue set in 1840s London with some wonderful characters spanning two generations at its heart.”
Producer Gareth Neame added, “It’s fantastic to be working again with Julian, a master storyteller. In Belgravia he has painted a wonderful backdrop of 19th century society against which intrigue and dynastic power struggles will play out. We are delighted to be partnering with ITV once again and look forward to working with EPIX to introduce US audiences to this fantastic event series.”
Julian Fellowes is also creator of The Gilded Age coming to 10 and The English Game for Netflix.
Belgravia is a Carnival Films co-production with EPIX for ITV and is distributed by NBCUniversal International Distribution.
