Keeley will play Lady Agnes Holland in the remake/sequel to the '70s hit Upstairs, Downstairs. The new show will follow a different family, the Hollands, living at 165 Eaton Place. Jean Marsh and Eileen Atkins, who created the original series, will both appear -- Marsh as her original character, Rose.
The cast will also include:
The show will be set in 1936 (abdication crisis). Three one-hour episodes have been ordered and will air on Sunday nights in the fall, and on PBS in the winter (presumably as part of Masterpiece Classic).
The show is filming in Cardiff and the show runner is Heidi Thomas, who worked on Cranford.

The Telegraph has a new interview with Keeley talking about Identity.
At the end she mentions she's almost ready to sign on for a play in the West End :)
There's also a "What's In My Beauty Bag" feature here.
