Julian Fellowes best known for creating hit period drama series Downton Abbey… his new series another period drama (no surprise) titled DOCTOR THORNE will be streaming on Amazon as part of Amazon Original Series, which is scheduled to premiere on Prime Video in the United States on May 20.
A production from The Weinstein Company, DOCTOR THORNE is the latest series from Oscar and Emmy-winning writer Julian Fellowes; and is directed by Nial MacCormick and stars Tom Hollander as Doctor Thorne, Ian McShane as Sir Roger Scatcherd, and Alison Brie as Miss Martha Dunstable. The series– a story of love, vanity, arrogance and illegitimacy will be debuting on Prime Video for Prime members to stream and download at no additional cost to their membership. The Weinstein Company had picked up the North American rights to the series from Hat Trick International earlier this year. Amazon Prime members can also watch the entire first season of Julian Fellows President Doctor Thorne using the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/originals.
Fellowes’ PBS hit Downton Abbey garnered three Golden Globe Awards and 47 other awards.
Roy Price, Vice President of Digital Video at Amazon Studios said:
“DOCTOR THORNE’s multilayered storytelling coupled with an outstanding ensemble cast is an exciting addition to our line-up. Prime members have loved having access to DOWNTOWN ABBEY, making each season a top streamed show on Prime Video since 2011, and we hope to make Prime Video the home for even more of Julian Fellowes future projects.”
Harvey Weinstein, Co-Chairman of The Weinstein Company said:
“DOWNTON ABBEY captivated audiences for six incredible seasons and it’s a tremendous thrill to be part of creator Julian Fellowes’ next endeavor DOCTOR THORNE. Amazon Prime is the perfect home to bring Fellowes’ beautiful, smart and creative world to US audiences. Amazon’s millions of fans who tuned into DOWNTON ABBEY will love this new show. Each episode will feature an exclusive, special introduction from Julian Fellowes himself. And we hope this is the first of many Julian Fellowes Presents that we plan on creating with Amazon and our UK partner at Hat Trick.”
DOCTOR THORNE is a book written by Anthony Trollope and is considered a classic in many countries. Fellowes has adapted this story with the same love and care he gave to Downton Abbey and Gosford Park– for which he won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
In the series, Dr. Thomas Thorne (Hollander) lives a quiet life with his niece Mary (Stefani Martini) in the English village of Greshambury, which is ruled with an iron fist by the terrifying Lady Arabella Gresham (Rebecca Front). But Lady Arabella’s world is forever changed when she learns that her beloved son is planning to elope with common-born Mary, rather than follow through on his arranged marriage to the rich American heiress Martha Dunstable (Brie). Unbeknownst to the rest of the town, the prestigious Gresham family has all but lost their fortune after their patriarch Francis Gresham Senior (Richard McCabe) squandered it on one of his many fruitless pursuits; they’re now forced to take loans from drunken millionaire Sir Roger Scatcherd (McShane) in order to survive. Lady Arabella’s scheme to regain their fortune through the arranged marriage now seems poised for disaster; but Lady Arabella is not one to be easily dissuaded, and thus resolves to achieve her goal by any means necessary.

Oprah Winfrey is set to lead HBO Films’ THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS based on Rebecca Skloot’s acclaimed bestselling nonfiction book of the same name. DGA winner, Emmy nominee and veteran Broadway director-producer George C. Wolfe will be directing from his screenplay. Winfrey, Alan Ball, Peter Macdissi, Carla Gardini, and Lydia Dean Pilcher will be executive producing with Skloot co-executive producing.
THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS tells the true story of Henrietta Lacks, an African-American woman whose cells were used to create the first immortal human cell line. Told through the eyes of her daughter, Deborah Lacks (Winfrey), the film chronicles her search to learn about the mother she never knew and to understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Lacks’ cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever. It’s a story of medicine arrogance and triumph, race, poverty and deep friendship between the unlikeliest of people.
Skloot’s books took more than a decade to research and later write, but once released it became a hit being a New York Times bestseller upon publication, and has remained there for more than four years.
Henrietta Lacks’s sons David Lacks, Jr. and Zakariyya Rahman and granddaughter Jeri Lacks are consultants on the film, which aims to begin production this summer.
