The RMS TITANIC sails to her rendezvous with death 100 years ago.
ABC is debuting a four-part dramatic miniseries on April 14th about the sinking of the RMS Titanic written by Downton Abbey creator-writer Julian Fellowes. The series might be historically more accurate than James Cameron’s blockbuster movie, but it’s also an awful lot drearier. It’s extraordinary how dull television has made such a momentous event.
Panic in the lifeboats aboard the ABC TV Miniseries TITANIC .
We all know the Titanic went down but the new 4-part series sinks with enough “pitching and rolling” in this soap opera disaster before the ITV/ABC TV show sinks with the ill-fated liner.

FACTS ON THE ABC-TV SERIES TITANIC – APRIL 14TH: Titanic is a four-part television costume drama created by producer Nigel Stafford-Clark and written by Julian Fellowes to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the world’s most famous maritime disaster on 15 April 1912. It sets out to paint a portrait of a whole society, telling the stories of a wide range of characters, both real and imagined, from every social level. Their narratives are developed and gradually interwoven over the first three episodes, each of which ends in a cliff-hanger as the ship begins to founder. The fourth and final episode will draw all of the different stories together and reveal to the audience who survives.
