This is pretty exciting! The new show by Downton Abbey's Julian Fellowes is set to premiere on HBO on Monday January 24th. It's being called a prequel to Downton Abbey, but the real cool part! Most of the show was filmed in Troy. As you can see from the trailer below, many of the exterior scenes and several of the interior scenes are my hometown of Troy, doubling for New York City! I can't wait to watch this show! First off, I've always loved Downton so I trust the man behind the show, and secondly, I don't know about you, but I love seeing our own backyard on the TV screen! Makes me proud. I am a Troy girl afterall! Will you be watching?
