SEASON 2
Premieres Wednesdays at 10pm ET Nov. 26, 2014 through Feb. 4, 2015

Mr. Selfridge tells the story of ‘Mile a Minute Harry’, a man with a mission to make shopping as thrilling as sex.

Based upon the life of flamboyant American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, who founded the world-renowned store on London’s Oxford Street in 1909, the second series picks up the story in 1914 as the store celebrates its 5th anniversary of trading.

Harry, played by Emmy award-winner, Jeremy Piven (Entourage) is proud of the store’s success but there is no time to rest on his laurels. With rumours rife and talk of war in Europe, he prepares staff for challenging times ahead. The store must play its own part in the war effort and help keep morale high on the home front.

Now more than ever Harry needs his wife, Rose, played by Frances O’Connor, by his side. But in the last five years, they have become increasingly estranged. While Rose has been spending long periods in America with the couple’s daughters and their son Gordon attends school in Winchester, Harry lives the life of a single man in London.

SEASON 1

In London in 1908/1909, women were reveling in a new sense of freedom and modernity. Ambitious, imaginative and inventive American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge wanted to indulge, empower and celebrate these women and so opened the doors of his lavish department store, on London’s famous Oxford Street. Based upon the book Shopping, Seduction and Mr. Selfridge by Lindy Woodhead, Mr. Selfridge is the account of the real life story of Harry Gordon Selfridge and his innovative and game-changing department store.

Mr_Selfridge_Series2_Gallery_34Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven (Entourage) leads the cast of Mr. Selfridge, the new smash hit series produced by ITV Studios. Created by multi-award winning writer Andrew Davies and written by Andrew Davies, Kate Brooke and Kate O’Riordan, Mr. Selfridge tells the story of “Mile a Minute Harry”, a man with a mission to make shopping as thrilling as sex. Pioneering and reckless, with an almost manic energy, he created a theatre of retail where any topic or trend that was new, exciting, entertaining – or sometimes just eccentric – was showcased.

Through the innovations and spectacular events Harry staged within Selfridge & Co., the story shines a light on hidden moments of the history of women, be it fashion, cosmetics, technology or domestic affairs. Harry’s colourful life plays out against the rich tapestry of London at the turn of the century. In his leisure hours he was a gambler, and although happily married, he enjoyed the company of glamorous show girls and film stars. His womanizing was legendary and he very much lived life in the fast lane.

Mr. Selfridge also stars Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street) as confident and alluring socialite Lady Mae Loxley, whose connections prove vital for Harry as he builds his empire. Additionally, Frances O’Connor stars as Harry’s wife Rose, along with acclaimed French actor Grégory Fitoussi as Henri LeClair, Harry’s flamboyant creative director, Aisling Loftus as shop assistant Agnes, Trystan Gravelle as ladies’ man Victor, the assistant manager at Selfridge’s in-store restaurant, and Zoe Tapper as celebrated stage entertainer Ellen Love, who becomes the new ‘face’ of Selfridge’s.
