He just tweeted the news………
Guilded Lilys is a no. ABC not picking it up. disappointed but very proud of the work we did. Jb
Was from Shondra Rhimes so may have been crap. It sounded like an attempt at an American ‘Downton Abbey’.
The story revolves around the Lily family, who open a luxurious New York hotel, and the people who work there. Bolger’s character Violet is set to marry Charlie (Lauria) but she instead falls in love with a poor ship’s servant whose personality apparently makes up for his empty wallet. Charlie is also in business with Violet’s father, to be played by Brian F. O’Byrne, so it would seem a decision to break the engagement might have dire consequences. It sounds like high drama all around, all with a period setting that seems aimed at the Downton Abbey audience, right down to including the servants in the plot.
