EPIX TO AIR JULIAN FELLOWES' AND ITV'S 19TH CENTURY SAGA BELGRAVIA IN USA! PLUS A TRAILER FOR HIS 1920'S MOVIE THE CHAPERON WITH ELIZABETH MCGOVERN, MIRANDA OTTO, BLYTHE DANNER, CAMPBELL SCOTT

JULIAN FELLOWES' BELGRAVIA
 TO BE AIRED BY EPIX IN USA
About a month ago I informed you that Julian Fellowes and ITV are preparing new costume drama BELGRAVIA based on his very own book, but
The casting should be announced soon
now Epix has also joined the Carnival Film series and will air it in USA.
The story set in the London high class of 1840s, actually begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, when the Duchess of Richmond throws a party in Brussels for the Duke of Wellington. Among the guests are James and Anne Trenchard, who are living on the profits of newfound trading success. Their young daughter Sophia has caught the eye of Edmund Bellasis, the son and heir of one of the richest and most prominent families in England. Twenty five years later, when the two families are settled into the newly developed area of Belgravia, the events of the ball, and the secrets, still resonate. Jamestown's John Alexander is directing the six episode saga. Stay tuned for the casting announcements!

'THE CHAPERONE' TRAILER
 A TRIP CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING
Speaking of Fellowes, check out the first trailer for the new period set movie he wrote THE CHAPERONE which is out this March. Set in the early 1920s,
The movie is out in cinemas this March
it follows the relationship between the young, free spirited and soon to be international screen starlet Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson) and her tee totalling chaperone (Elizabeth McGovern). On their journey from the conservative confines of Wichita Kansas to the flash and sizzle of New York City, both women are driven by a kindred desire for self discovery and liberation from the past. Based on the book by Laura Moriarty and anchored by the supporting cast that includes Miranda Otto, Géza Röhrig, and Blythe Danner, THE CHAPERONE is a sensitive, resonant, and illuminating tale of women's lives in the early 20th century.

  1. "The Chaperone" looks excellent! Louise Brooks ultimately became a famous star of the silver screen and a notorious lesbian, so there's that, too.

    2. No woman is obliged to give herself to men just because they give her gifts. Men need to learn that.

    3. but why are they then using men for monies and gifts? What a selective set of morals.... And why do you conclude that just because they enjoy the company of pretty girls they want to eat them up like bad wolves? Buying you an ice cream does not mean a man wants to take you to bed and it does not mean you should use him for it. Also, men are not evil just because they have strong sexual needs, and shouldn't be used for that. Imagine if men played like that with women's emotional needs? Women need to learn that.

    4. You have a really twisted view of women, Dezzy. The 1950s are over.

  2. It seems Belgravia's going to satify many people's love for intrigues, secrecy, power struggles, scandals.
    By the way, I visited the battle place at Waterloo, many years ago. I was impressed, and I learnt the source of the expression "He met his Waterloo" (allusion to Napoleon who lost the battle).

    1. I bet it still has the grave atmosphere! Napoleon was such an evil bastard who isn't considered a dark mind like Hitler just because he is from the West.

  4. The Chaperone looks delightful! I also loved Downton Abbey and this has a similar feel to it. Plus, we always enjoy Elizabeth McGovern here.
