NEW YORK, April 23 (UPI) -- A musical parody of the British costume drama "Downton Abbey" has been taped at Studio 54 in New York and posted on the Internet.

The video has been viewed nearly 26,000 times since it was posted on YouTube Monday.

Season 3 of the show recently wrapped in the United States.

The musical video is being billed as the eagerly awaited first episode for the upcoming fourth season.

"The guys and I were all 'Downton' fans and while spitballing ideas, we said, 'Well, "Buffy" & "Grey's" did a musical episode,' and we thought of ['Downton' creator] Julian Fellowes in a room with [fellow writer-producers] Shonda Rhimes and Joss Whedon trying to plan out the inevitable 'Downton Abbey' musical episode in Season 4," producer Kevin Duda told EW.com.

Colin Andrew Mochrie, a comedian best known for his work on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?," plays Fellowes, who explains in the video he wanted to create a "Downton" musical in New York as a treat for American fans upset because the show always airs in the United Kingdom before it hits U.S. television screens.
