A little known fact, Mrs. Haddad Tompkins was the original host of Masterpiece Classics (from 2011-2011) where she introduced everything from the burgeoning hit DOWNTON ABBEY to low-rated reruns of I, CLAUDIUS.

Several months ago, outtakes were leaked of Janie hosting Masterpiece Classic (seen HERE: This current video shares the story of her plight. She has suffered a gross injustice at the hands of PBS, Laura Linney and the director in residence, Joel A. Spence. She has hired a lawyer to restore her to her rightful throne. Please share her plight by spreading the word about this SHOCKING TELL ALL VIDEO and help to #RehireJanie!!! Find Janie (@janiehaddad) at these places:
