PBS’ Manor House debuts tonight.
PBS series of people-living-in-houses- continues tonight with the debut of Manor House. Nineteen people, including a family of five and 14 staff members, are divided, literally, by class inside a 1905 Edwardian Britain mansion. Because they “were unhappy about the Spartan accommodations and exhausted by the workdays,” two “servants” quit the series, according to the Journal Sentinel. The six-episode series airs tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday, with two episodes starting each night at 8 p.m. ET. Since this is PBS, though, make sure to check your local listings.
