NEW YORK (AP) -

A longtime producer at PBS is ready to pull back the curtains on "Downton Abbey" and other "Masterpiece" favorites.

Rebecca Eaton, executive producer of the "Masterpiece" series for more than a quarter century, has a deal with Viking for "Making Masterpiece: 25 Years Behind the Scenes of Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery!"

The publisher announced Wednesday that the book will come out Oct. 29. Patricia Mulcahy will co-write "Making Masterpiece."

According to Viking, Eaton will share stories about Daniel Radcliffe, Maggie Smith and other performers and will write about such popular programs as "Downton Abbey" and "Prime Suspect." Productions from "Masterpiece" have won numerous Emmy, Peabody and Golden Globe awards.
