We'll also discuss modernizing one of television's oldest brands and that infamous "Downton Abbey" season finale that left more than a few fans angry.

Host: Rachael Myrow

  • Rebecca Eaton, executive producer of PBS' "Masterpiece" series and co-producer of shows such as "Downton Abbey" and "Sherlock"
