When does ‘Downton’ creator’s new TV series ‘Belgravia’ start in the US?

EPIX has confirmed when Belgravia will begin airing in the US.

ITV’s new period drama is based on Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes’s New York Times bestselling novel from 2016.

Set in London in the 1840s, the six-part mini-series features a wonderful cast of British actors, including Tamsin Greig (Episodes), Philip Glenister (Life on Mars), Harriet Walter (Downton Abbey) and Tom Wilkinson (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).

Belgravia will premiere in the US at 9pm on Sunday 12th April on EPIX.

EPIX can be viewed through its new streaming service EPIX NOW on TV, on demand, online and across devices.

Amazon Prime users can also get an EPIX free trial!

Downton Abbey producer Gareth Neame commented: “It’s fantastic to be working again with Julian, a master storyteller. In Belgravia he has painted a wonderful backdrop of 19th century society against which intrigue and dynastic power struggles will play out. We are delighted to be partnering with ITV once again and look forward to working with EPIX to introduce US audiences to this fantastic event series.”

The official synopsis reads: “Belgravia is a story of secrets and dishonour amongst the upper echelon of London society in the 19th Century.

“When the Trenchards accept an invitation to the now legendary ball hosted by the Duchess of Richmond on the fateful evening of the Battle of Waterloo, it sets in motion a series of events that will have consequences for decades to come as secrets unravel behind the porticoed doors of London’s grandest postcode.”

Belgravia is written by Julian Fellowes, adapting his own book, with Downton bosses Gareth Neame, Nigel Marchant and Liz Trubridge producing the series, and John Alexander (Indian Summers) directing.

Neame recently revealed when he expects the second Downton Abbey movie to begin filming.

Julian Fellowes’s original novel is available on Amazon.
