Downton Abbey transformed PBS from a sometimes stodgy channel into a destination network, drawing 5.4 million viewers for its second-season finale (doubling PBS' primetime average). Now, Downton creator Julian Fellowes has signed with NBC to create The Gilded Age, his first series for American broadcast TV.

Spartacus: War of the Damned
You'd think it would be difficult — if not impossible — to keep fans happy when they know their hero is about to die. But the folks behind Spartacus: War of the Damned don't seem too worried. In fact, as the Starz series prepares to launch its final season on Jan. 25, creator Steven S.

It's "better to leave people wanting more than to risk repeating ourselves and diminish" the power of the Spartacus franchise, Starz president Chris Albrecht told the Television Critics Association at Thursday's fall previews.
In June, the cable network announced that the upcoming third season of Spartacus would be the series' last. Albrecht noted that going into Season 2, when "the rebels were in the hills and the Romans were in the towns" the show had to tell "two distinct stories, which is not the best." So instead of detailing another battle, another argument ad nauseum, it was decided the series would end in a big way with one more season: Spartacus: War of the Damned, which premieres in January 2013.
