About this Article
Harry Selfridge made shopping fun. Sure, people always shopped, but it was more of a chore before Selfridge redefined the experience in 1909. Though many Americans may not know his name, the lush eight-part series "Mr. Selfridge," launching on PBS' "Masterpiece Classic" Sunday, March 31, brings viewers into his world. Jeremy Piven ("Entourage") is perfectly cast as the brash American in the title role.
