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
now Epix has also joined the Carnival Film series and will air it in USA.
|The casting should be announced soon|
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,
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.
