MASTERPIECE CLASSIC: "MR. SELFRIDGE"
March 31, 2013  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Jeremy Piven goes from modern L.A. in Entourage to turn-of-the-century London (the 20th century, that is) in this new series from Andrew Davies, who gave us those tasty adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, Little Dorrit and so much more. Piven is at this show’s center, as an American businessman who goes to London to revamp and all but invent the modern department store. But it’s the women around him who rule, and demand the most attention, starting with Zoe Tapper as selfish showgirl Ellen Love, Aisling Loftus as shopgirl Agnes, Frances O’Connor as neglected wife Rose, and Katherine Kelly as the imperious Lady May. If you’re a Downton Abbey fan and want more of that sort of thing, here you go. For a full review, see Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes. Check local listings.
