Deadline.com reports that Julian Fellowes, creator of DOWNTON ABBEY, will soon be seen on ITV touring some of England's great estates and historical houses. NBCUniversal International Television's Chocolate Media will produce the two-part series to be titled Julian Fellowes' HISTORICAL HOUSES.
ITV's Downton Abbey is itself filmed at one of England's most famous mansions, Highclere Castle. Lord Fellowes will discover the back stories to the historic abodes that are often still owned by descendants of the original families. Commented Fellowes, "the archives are rich in their stories and I have been on the trail of just a few of these."
Louise Wardle is producing, Alan Brown is executive producing and Wardle and Jenny Dames are directing the upcoming series.
