Rebecca Eaton, the Emmy Award-winning executive producer of Masterpiece Theatre, describes her beloved PBS show as "the little black dress" of television. And like that little black dress, the longest running weekly prime time drama series in history possesses a resilience that few would have predicted. In Making Masterpiece, Eaton reminisces about the show and its numerous notable actors; but she does much more, serving up penetrating interviews with the writers, directors, producers, and other participants in a show that has been credited with revitalizing interest in nineteenth century classics. Eaton's account, which is highlighted by her own photographs, also discusses how the recent popularity of Masterpiece series like Prime Suspense, Inspector Morris, Sherlock, and Downton Abbey have revitalized its offerings.
