Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge
Jeremy Piven ("Entourage") stars as a wheeling-dealing American who shows early 1900s Londoners how to shop. Based on the life of colorful retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge, the new eight-part series is created by Emmy Award-winning writer Andrew Davies ("Pride and Prejudice," "Bleak House"). Also starring are Frances O’Connor ("Madame Bovary"), Aisling Loftus ("Page Eight"), Zoe Tapper ("Zen"), Amanda Abbington ("Case Histories"), and Samuel West ("Any Human Heart"). Who knew shopping could be like this!
Harry invites a famous ballerina to appear at the store, but the publicity event doesn't go as planned thanks to Ellen Love; Rose comes clean about her identity to Roddy.
Airs Sunday, April 14, at 8pm on Channel 5.
