    At the unfashionable end of Oxford Street in 1909 London, an American retail tycoon arrives to jettison fusty British tradition and open the biggest and finest department store the world has ever seen: Selfridges. Three-time Emmy® winner Jeremy Piven (in his first television appearance since his iconic role as Hollywood agent Ari Gold in Entourage) stars as Harry Gordon Selfridge, the flamboyant entrepreneur and showman seeking to provide London's shoppers with the ultimate merchandise and the ultimate thrill.
    Emmy® Award-winning writer Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House) conjures the opulence and excitement of Selfridges and the story of its founder, a man of exuberant, outsized, and potentially dangerous, appetite. Behind Selfridges' lavish shop windows, gleaming counters, and majestic doors, appetite intersects with ambition and desire not just for Harry, but for his staff, his family, and the various women drawn to the store and the man. Zoe Tapper (Stage Beauty) is showgirl and temptress Ellen Love; Frances O’Connor (Madame Bovary) as is Harry's loyal wife, Rose; Grégory Fitoussi (Spiral) is the mercurial window designer extraordinaire, Henri Leclair; and Aisling Loftus (Case Histories) is the spunky shop girl Agnes Towler. Mr. Selfridge airs Sundays, March 31 through May 19, 2013 at 9pm ET (check local listings) on PBS' MASTERPIECE Classic.

    I enjoy "Downton Abbey", but Piven's a twat, so I'm going to have to sleep on this.

    Are you a chick? My wife says it's for chicks.

    I hope she's not lying. :mad:

    Or you're not lying. :mad:

    It'll definitely be one for the broads. But interesting, nonetheless -- how an American crossed the pond & revolutionized the way Londoners (who could afford it) spent their money. To this day, Selfridges is, in my opinion, the finest department store in the world. It makes Barney's looks quaint.

    No, that's not my "thing".

    It's good to know neither of yous was lying, though. Faith in womanhood: restored.......................at least until the next DlistCelebutard post.

    :puke:

    Are they the ones on the north side of Oxford Street, who always do up their windows really nice around the holidays?

    I just look it up: yes................yes, they are.

    I'll still have to sleep on it. I just can't get that worked up about a department store.

    Or that twat-faced Piven.

    Why does everything have to at least partially suck? :mad:
