According to USA Today, PBS has renewed Victoria, a series about the British queen, for a second season. The ratings for the series are higher in its first season than another PBS hit, Downton Abbey, which is saying a lot because I really enjoyed Downton Abbey tremendously and am equally excited for another season of Victoria. See story below:
Based on the popularity of these shows, Informed, hosted by Rob Lowe, has begun development on a series for PBS member stations on the history of British royalty. We are excited about this project and look forward to distribution later this year.
