Sundays, January 9 through January 30, 2011, at 9pm ET on PBS (check local listings) MASTERPIECE's 40th anniversary season premieres with a quintessentially MASTERPIECE production, Downton Abbey, an Edwardian-era spellbinder created by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park). Starring Hugh Bonneville (Notting Hill), Maggie Smith (Harry Potter), Elizabeth McGovern (A Room with a View), Dan Stevens (Sense & Sensibility) and a country-house full of other great actors, the miniseries set audience records during its recent UK broadcast and was hailed as "a sumptuous, instantly riveting glimpse of a world—and family—on the verge of profound change" by the London Daily Telegraph.
