Janie Haddad Tompkins

Downton Abbey - Laura Linney replaces Janie Haddad Tompkins

19,633 views 2 years ago
Before Laura Linney...there was Janie Haddad Tompkins.

A little known fact, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was the original host of Masterpiece Classics (from 2011-2011) where she introduced everything from the burgeoning hit DOWNTON ABBEY to low-rated reruns of I, CLAUDIUS. Following some "creative differences" with PBS, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was replaced, unceremoniously, by Laura Linney -- her PBS legacy lost to the world. Until now. These outtakes from her work with PBS Director-in-Residence, Joel A. Spence, help paint the tragic story of dreams crushed and hosting jobs lost.
