Posted Tue Feb 19, 2013 at 06:00 AM PST by

The PBS drama starring Jeremy Piven comes to Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, PBS is readying 'Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge' for Blu-ray on April 23. Airs on PBS Sundays, March 31st through May 19th (Check Local Listings).

Emmy® Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven (“Entourage”) stars as American entrepreneur and colorful retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge.

Pioneering and reckless, with an almost manic energy, Harry Selfridge created a theater of retail for early 1900s Londoners where any topic or trend that was new, exciting, entertaining – or sometimes just eccentric – was showcased. Based on the book “Shopping, Seduction and Mr. Selfridge” by author Lindy Woodhead.

The eight-part miniseries also stars Frances O’Connor (“Madame Bovary”), Aisling Loftus (“Page Eight”), Zoe Tapper (“Zen”), Amanda Abbington (“Case Histories”), and Samuel West (“Any Human Heart”).

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the 3-Disc Blu-ray set is $54.99.
