Downton Abbey is an international television sensation created by Oscar winning writer Julian Fellowes. For the past 4 years, the program, (which airs on Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. on Pioneer Public TV) has attracted a growing base of fans who tune in to watch the aristocratic Crawley family navigate a rapidly changing world in England during the 1920’s.
The show has inspired a nationwide interest in Edwardian era clothing and fashion, with top designers like Ralph Lauren offering gowns and tweed jackets based on the hit TV series. At each of the event, Pioneer is encouraging audience members to dress up in period costumes inspired by the TV series.
These Downton Abbey Season 5 Sneak Previews are a great way for Pioneer to connect with our members and supporters,” said Pioneer’s president and General manager Les Heen. “We hope to create a festive fun loving atmosphere in every community as ready ourselves for the holidays,” he added
