'Downton' producer open to taking show to New York

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Could the Crowley family of "Downton Abbey" and their loyal servants ever come to America?

Executive producer Gareth Neame says he'd like to see it happen.

PBS hosted a Q&A with Neame and some of the cast members Monday in New York where a portion of the season five premiere was screened.

An audience member noted that the Crowleys the fictional aristocratic family that the show is centered on have relatives in New York and asked whether "Downton Abbey" would ever go there on location.

Neame said it was a great idea, but would cost roughly $10 million.

Shirley MacLaine and Paul Giamatti play the family's American relatives who have made cameos on the series.

"Downton Abbey," made by Britain's ITV network, returns Jan. 4 on PBS in the United States.
