The producers of “Grey’s Anatomy” must be rather annoyed by NBC’s decision to order a show from “Downton Abbey” producer Julian Fellowes called “The Gilded Age.” Earlier this year, the “Grey’s” folks — including Milton Academy grad Betsy Beers — filmed a pilot around Boston for ABC’s “Gilded Lilys,” which was to be a drama that followed characters who worked and stayed in the first luxury hotel in New York in the late 1800s. “Gilded Lilys,” which starred Blythe Danner, was not picked up despite the buzz surrounding the local drama.
