The show also marked Fellowes’ first time adapting his own work: He first wrote Belgravia as a novel that was published in 2016.
“I’ve adapted books before for television, film, and theater, but never my own work,” he said. “I did find it quite interesting that you have to forget you wrote it — when a bit seems boring or too long and in need of cuts, you need to forget you were the original author and come at it with a new sword.”
The ensemble cast also includes Harriet Walter (The Crown), Alice Eve (She’s Out Of My League), Tara Fitzgerald (Game of Thrones), Ella Purnell (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Richard Goulding (The Windsors), James Fleet (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Adam James (Band of Brothers), Paul Ritter (Friday Night Dinner) and Saskia Reeves (Luther).
Belgravia airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on EPIX.
