Madmen meets Downton Abbey: A new long-running TV series.  Adapted from Fiona MacCarthy’s acclaimed book, Last Curtsey, DEBS follows the lives of four friends from their ‘coming out’ rites in 1958 to adulthood in the emancipated world of ‘60s London. The series charts the women’s interconnected lives over a ten year period: from the last presentations to the Queen and the debutante season that followed, to the revolutionary, anti-establishment prism of sex, drugs, fashion and rock and roll, dramatising the breakdown of the class system and women’s lib. DEBS will counterpoint the hide-bound late 50s with the world of swinging ‘60s London, just as Downton Abbey has given the world access to high society at another time and place, and Mad Men has brilliantly illuminated advertising in New York across the same era.
