Despite the fact that Julian Fellowes' Downton Abbey is coming to an end later this year, he isn't quite done working with ITV. The much in-demand writer, who has period drama Gilded Age in the works at NBC, is returning to ITV to adapt one of his favourite novels, Doctor Thorne, as a three-part drama. Hat Trick Productions will produce with Mark Redhead, Julian Fellowes Chris Kelly and Ted Childs serving as executive producers. Production begins later this year.
