[video] Mr. Selfridge - Episode One

"From Masterpiece on PBS. Emmy® Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven stars as American entrepreneur and colorful retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge. 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. Created by Emmy® Award-winning writer Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House), the eight-part miniseries also stars Frances O’Connor (Madame Bovary), Aisling Loftus (Page Eight), Zoe Tapper (Zen), Amanda Abbington (Case Histories), and Samuel West (Any Human Heart).
