PBS and MASTERPIECE have announced that MASTERPIECE is producing its first feature film which will reunite the writer, director and star of Downton Abbey. The Chaperone, based on Laura Moriarty’s best-selling American novel, will be scripted by Julian Fellowes, directed by Michael Engler, and star Elizabeth McGovern, who played Lady Grantham in the hit series. It will air on PBS stations nationwide after its initial theatrical run.
The Chaperone takes place against the backdrop of the
tumultuous times of the early 1920s. A Kansas woman (McGovern) is
forever changed when she chaperones a beautiful and talented 15-year-old
dancer (Julia Goldani Telles, The Affair) named Louise Brooks
to New York for the summer. One of them is eager to fulfill her destiny
of dance and movie stardom; the other is on a mission to unearth the
mysteries of her past.
Julian Fellowes said, “I am absolutely delighted to be working with MASTERPIECE and Elizabeth McGovern on The Chaperone, based on Laura Moriarty’s novel, which is captivating and beguiling and resonant in so many ways.”
“It is a thrill and an honor to be working with MASTERPIECE and Julian again on his beautiful adaptation of The Chaperone, and to be in the expert hands of director Michael Engler,” said McGovern.
