    The Emmy Award-winning producer of PBS's MASTERPIECE reveals the secrets to Downton Abbey, Sherlock and other hit programs in her new memoir, Making Masterpiece: 25 Years Behind the Scenes at Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! on PBS.

    Since taking over the helm of the PBS series Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! in 1985, Rebecca Eaton has been responsible for such high-profile titles as Prime Suspect, Bleak House, The Lost Prince, Inspector Morse, Miss Marple, Tony Hillerman's Skinwalkers, Coyote Waits and A Thief of Time as well as The Complete Jane Austen and Cranford. She has accrued a bookcase of accolades, including forty two Primetime Emmy Awards, seventeen Peabody Awards, two Golden Globes, and two Academy Award nominations for the Masterpiece co-production, Mrs. Brown.
