Downton Abbey is a British period drama that won a Golden Globe for best drama mini-series in 2012. It begins in pre World War I England. Each series will span several years, with the second series set to take place during and after World War I, and the third series to take place at the beginning of the 1920s.
Downton Abbey details the trials and tribulations of a family of nobility living on an estate called Downton Abbey, run by matriarch Violet Crawley, her son Robert Crawley, and his American wife, Cora. It also follows the lives of the servants on the estate, such as butler Mr. Carson and head servant Mrs. Hughes.
Marriage and inheritance starts as a huge focus on the show, as the first season focuses heavily on Lady Mary Crawley's search for a suitable husband and her love for her distant middle-class relative, Mathew Crawley, who also happens to be a likely heir to the Downton Abbey estate and the title of Earl that comes with it. The second season focuses on the events leading thru World War I. The third season follows turmoil surrounding the decline in the fortunes of the estate and the changes in the new decade. We also learn more about Cora's side of the family.
Downton Abbey is set to release a new fashion line, furniture range, décor range and homewares products, says executive producer Gareth Neame.
