Three-time Emmy® award winner and Golden Globe® winner Jeremy Piven (Entourage) leads an all-star cast as American entrepreneur, Harry Gordon Selfridge, in the classy period drama Mr Selfridge. From the writer of Bridget Jones's Diary and the Pride and Prejudice series, and the co-producers of Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge tells the story of -Mile a Minute Harry', a man with a mission to make shopping as thrilling as sex.
Based on the book Shopping, Seduction and Mr Selfridge, this brand new drama follows the life of Harry and his magnificent department store, Selfridges, as he challenges the rules of retail. From the fashionable Mayfair society to the glamour and backstage intrigue of London's theatres, to the business boardrooms and smoky jazz halls, and the back-street cafés of the workingmen and women, this is a big city story at the dawn of the modern age.
Set in 1909, the series follows a colourful cast played by Piven as Harry, Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street, Life on Mars) as the confident and alluring socialite Lady Mae, Frances O'Connor (Piccadilly Jim, A.I) as Harry's wife Rose, and Zoe Tapper (Desperate Romantics) as Miss Ellen Love, who soon becomes the apple of Harry's eye.
