According to The Hollywood Reporter, the premiere of the new ITV drama MR. SELFRIDGE starring Jeremy Piven delivered big numbers for the network. The show, which is set to premiere in the U.S. on PBS in late March drew an average of 7.3 million viewers. Mr Selfridge also beat out the second episode of BBC's popular mini-series Ripper Street, which drew an average of 5.4 million viewers.
Created by multi-award winning writer Andrew Davies, 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.
