It might be hard at first to see the similarities between the White House and Downton Abbey, a drama about aristocrats and their gaggle of staff, but trust us, it's almost as if the British show was created about the Obamas.
Namely, the extensive live-in help that the Executive Office must have. Who wouldn't want to see the drama boiling up between the White House chef and the presidential dog walker?
And just throw some period clothing on the First Family (Barack and Michelle are shoo-ins as Lord and Lady Grantham, and Sasha and Malia were meant to play Mary and Edith Crawley) and you've got yourself an international hit.
