Television: December 2012 Archives

Downton Abbey comes to Montreal

dta3.jpgFor those of us who haven't seen it yet, Downton Abbey is the award-winning British period drama about the upstairs-downstairs life of a Yorkshire country estate.

In 2011, it was the most-watched television series on both Britain's ITV and PBS in the United States and was showered with Emmy nominations, 27 of them. An all-new season - the third - airs on PBS in January. The fans are thrilled.

So PBS is doing a fundraiser across the border, here in Montreal -- a big Downton Abbey-style feast at the beautiful Rialto Theatre on January 5th.

We've got a Downton Abbey fan on the line - who just happens to work for Mountain Lake PBS. Jennifer Kowalczyk spoke with Sonali Karnick from Plattsburgh, New York.
