The Showman behind the retail empire
Created by Emmy Award-winning writer Andrew Davies (Pride And Prejudice, Bleak House), Mr. Selfridge brings to life the story of American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, the colorful and visionary founder of Selfridge's, London's lavish department store. Pioneering and reckless, with an almost manic energy, Harry Selfridge created a theater of retail for early 1900s Londoners where any topic or trend that was new, exciting, entertaining - or sometimes just eccentric - was showcased.
Emmy Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven (Entourage) leads as 'Mile a Minute Harry' in a brilliant ensemble cast that also features Frances O'Connor (Madame Bovary), Aisling Loftus (Page Eight), Zoe Tapper (Zen), Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street), Gregory Fitoussi (Spiral), and Trystan Gravelle (Anonymous). Who knew that shopping could be so thrilling!
