MR SELFRIDGE

SCT, 8.40pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

Based on the bi­og­ra­phy Shop­ping, Se­duc­tion & Mr Selfridge, this lav­ishly shot drama trans­ports the viewer back to the streets of Lon­don in 1908. It’s the story of Harry Gor­don Selfridge, the man be­hind one of the world’s most iconic depart­ment stores. Jeremy Piven plays the en­thu­si­as­tic and gre­gar­i­ous Harry, who was not only the first to cot­ton on to the im­por­tance of celebrity en­dorse­ment, but also to have a keen un­der­stand­ing of what women wanted when it came to clothes. Aussie ac­tress Frances O’Con­nor stars as his wife Rose.
