Mr. Selfridge marked Jeremy Piven’s return to television after his Emmy® and Golden Globe®- winning performance in the hit series Entourage. “I’m absolutely delighted that MASTERPIECE viewers welcomed Mr. Selfridge into their homes,” said Piven. “Mr. Selfridge is a true ensemble piece, and audiences can look forward to seeing the return of their favorite characters and some intriguing new faces.”
