PBS will give fans of the “Downton Abbey” Crawley clan free tea and biscuits from a mobile tea truck tooling around New York City next week, in a marketing stunt ahead of the Jan. 5 U.S. premiere of season 4.
The truck will be parked at a different Manhattan location each day Monday through Friday. Costumed servers will dole out free tea and cookies to fans and let them take photos against the backdrop of Highclere Castle.
The cast of the hit Brit series — the most-watched drama in PBS history — also will be in Gotham next week for media appearances, a VIP screening and a Dec. 12 standing-room-only fan event at The TimesCenter that will include a panel discussion with exec producers Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame.
