The last time I saw Jeremy Piven on my TV screen was in the hugely successful series, Entourage where he played the often douchey, but hilarious Ari Gold. I’d seen him in other roles prior to that I enjoyed him, but I became a fan after his Hollywood go-getter role. He was sharp, witty and just so awesome to watch. Well if you, like me, dig him then you’ll be happy to know that he’s back and this time he’s playing he role of Harry Gordon Selfridge in BBC Entertainment‘s MR SELFRIDGE. This period drama kicks off on DStv channel 120 on Sunday 13th October.
IMDb describes the show as follows, “Centers on the real-life story of the flamboyant and visionary American founder of Selfridge’s, London’s department store.” I have a longer synopsis and a more detailed look at episode one and after reading that, I’m definitely going to be setting my “Series Record” option on my PVR for the season. I’m always amazed by how simple ideas become massive empires. I also really enjoy these period dramas, so I’m certain this show will be fantastic. SIDEBAR For those of you in Johannesburg, you might want to do the same because Rihanna is here that night 🙂
