LONDON — U.K.-based Harmony Films has announced the forthcoming April 1 release of its first feature “Down on Abby - Tales from Bottomley Manor.”
Directed by Gazzman, the film spoofs the popular British PBS TV series "Downton Abbey."
“Down on Abby” is set at the beautiful Bottomley Manor, home to the eccentric and debauched Lord and Lady Grabhem and their stepdaughters Abby and Fanny. The film follows the upper class family upstairs — and members of the working class staff downstairs — as they prepare for a dinner party quite unlike any other.
The cast includes Ben Dover, Lexi Lowe, Jasmine Jae and Ava Dalush, along with Clarke Kent and Tony De Sergio.
Harmony reports that the film has already received positive media attention from the press, including coverage from the “Conan O’Brien Show,” “Grazia” magazine in France and both The Sydney Herald and Metro newspapers in Australia and the U.K., respectively.
On April 1, “Down on Abby” will become available to purchase in two formats as classified by the British Board of Film Classification. The softer version (rated suitable for those 18 and older) will retail at £14.99, while the hardcore version will retail at £19.99.
The softcore version is currently available for preorder through Amazon U.K. Fans can find the hardcore version in licensed sex shops, including the London- and West End-based Harmony Stores in the UK.
In addition, Portland TV, home to TVX, has acquired the film's U.K. broadcasting rights. Hustler has secured the U.S. equivalent.
