Drive picks up Downton doc

Actor Jim Carter plays butler Charles Carson in Downton Abbey

UK-based production funding and distribution agency Drive is set to distribute a behind-the-scenes documentary about hit period drama Downton Abbey.

Return to Downton Abbey (1×60’), produced by UK indie Peninsula Television, was originally commissioned by US terrestrial NBC and Focus Features.

The show is set to air across US networks on September 19 and is executive produced by Ronan Hand and David Harvey for Peninsula Television.

The doc is narrated by Downton actor Jim Carter and takes viewers behind the scenes at the show’s main filming location, Highclere Castle in Hampshire. It features other cast members including Hugh Bonneville, Lesley Nichol, Allen Leech and Michael C Fox, and sheds light on the castle’s history.

Drive will be distributing the show in all territories outside the US and will launch the project to international buyers at Mipcom in Cannes next month.
