ITV commissions six part adaptation of Julian Fellowes' Belgravia

ITV's Head of Drama, Polly Hill, has today confirmed commission of Julian Fellowes' six part series, Belgravia, to be produced by Carnival Films, producers of the global hit Downton Abbey.

The series, which begins filming in spring 2019, is a co-production with premium cable network, EPIX.

Belgravia reunites the award-winning creative team behind Downton Abbey with Julian Fellowes adapting his bestselling novel for the screen and Carnival's Gareth Neame executive producing alongside Nigel Marchant, Liz Trubridge and Fellowes. John Alexander (Sense & Sensibility) will direct the limited series with Colin Wratten (Killing Eve) producing. Casting is currently underway.

Commented Polly Hill:

"We're delighted to be reuniting with Julian Fellowes, Gareth Neame and Carnival Films to produce Belgravia for ITV. It's a tale of scandal and intrigue set in 1840s London with some wonderful characters spanning two generations at its heart."

Commented Gareth Neame:

"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."

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 a Carnival Films co-production with EPIX for ITV and is distributed by NBCUniversal International Distribution. Orion Publishing publishes the eponymous novel.
