MASTERPIECE | Upstairs Downstairs | Behind the Scenes Interviews | PBS

Duration: 03:16
Program: Masterpiece Classic #4108
Broadcast Date: Apr. 10, 2011

Secrets, scandal & seduction -- it's going to be a busy year for the residents of Eaton Place. An enormous success worldwide, the original Upstairs Downstairs won seven Emmys during its run on MASTERPIECE THEATRE in the mid-1970s—including Best Actress for Jean Marsh, who returns in the new three-part series as Rose, this time as the housekeeper. The drama unfolds as new inhabitants move into the same house, 165 Eaton Place in 1936, and a new army of servants and butlers are hired to manage the household. In this tale of tension, MASTERPIECE pulls from their family favorites and includes the original series co-creator (with Jean Marsh) Eileen Atkins (Cranford), Keeley Hawes (Wives and Daughters), Ed Stoppard, and Art Malik (The Jewel in the Crown) with a script by Emmy-nominee Heidi Thomas (Cranford).
