‘Belgravia,’ From the ‘Downton Abbey’ Producers, Looks and Sounds Exactly Like ‘Downton Abbey’ – Watch the Trailer (Video)

‘Belgravia,’ From the ‘Downton Abbey’ Producers, Looks and Sounds Exactly Like ‘Downton Abbey’ – Watch the Trailer (Video)
If you liked “Downton Abbey,” then has Epix got the show for you! Because limited series “Belgravia” looks and sounds Exactly like “Downton” — the trailer even reveals an almost identical piano theme.

Here’s the thing though: “Belgravia” is a Julian Fellowes adaptation of a Julian Fellowes novel of the same name, and Fellowes, Gareth Neame, Nigel Marchant, and Liz Trubridge are the executive producers. In other words, it can’t be a “Downton” ripoff if it’s by the folks behind “Downton.”

(And yes, we checked with Epix: This lookalike — and soundalike — show has nothing to do with “Downton” other than the producing team. It’s not a spinoff or companion series.)

Dispelling the notion that Foxtel has cut back on its commitment to Australian drama, the pay TV platform is in the hunt for shows that would not appear anywhere else on Australian screens and for a returning series to fill the gap left by A Place to Call Home.

Foxtel has four dramas in development including Lawyer X: The story of Informer 3838, based on the true story of Nicola Gobbo, the criminal barrister who was a police informant from 1995 until 2009 during Melbourne’s gangland wars.

A Place to Call Home was so loved by older audiences, who are under-served in this market, it would be great to find something that hits that mark,” Carly Heaton, Foxtel executive in charge of drama production, tells If. “There are a few interesting projects floating around but we haven’t yet got one where we say,

This Succession review contains spoilers.

Succession Season 2 Episode 7

Things are getting downright hostile on Succession.

Let’s consider the case of Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong), perhaps the most beleaguered of Logan Roy’s (Brian Cox) psychologically and socially abused adult children. They’re all vying for a piece of the Waystar Royco pie. Especially Kendall, who attempted a coup last season that, after the accidental death of an employee, came to nothing and put him squarely in his father’s pocket.

At the beginning of “Return,” Kendall is chatting with Naomi Pierce (Annabelle Dexter-Jones), the rival media family’s own version of him. Ever since the pair first met and bonded in “Tern Haven,” they’ve maintained a flirtatiously combative relationship. The latest evidence of this? Naomi wants Kendall to send

Zoe Terakes proudly represents her community on stage and screen

Sophie Hawkshaw (L) and Zoe Terakes in ‘Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie’s Dead Aunt)’.

Since Zoe Terakes came out, the proudly gay actor has not been offered any screen roles as straight characters – but that has not hindered the 19-year-old’s flourishing career.

There is no such discrimination in the theatre world and Zoe is currently performing in Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge at the Ensemble Theatre, directed by Iain Sinclair.
