Lunch at Michael's With PBS Masterpiece's Rebecca Eaton

Loyal readers of this blog know that I am an obsessive fan of Masterpiece on PBS so I was thrilled that Rebecca Eaton, the woman responsible for bringing Downton Abbey to America, agreed to do a 'Lunch' interview with me for my column Wednesdays at Michael's. Rebecca is one of the most respected executives in television and had an amazing track record to prove it. She was in town with the cast of one of my favorite Masterpiece shows, Victoria, which premieres with Season Two on January 14. You can read the entire interview here. http://blogger.lookonline.com/2017/12/wednesdays-at-michaels-by-diane-clehane.html
