‘Mr. Selfridge,’ ‘Wolf Hall’ Among Titles Streaming in November on PBS Masterpiece Prime Video

PBS Distribution in November is debuting seven new programs on the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel, including the entire series (all four seasons) of “Mr. Selfridge,” starring Jeremy Piven.

PBS Masterpiece is $5.99 per month with an Amazon Prime or Prime Video subscription.

All four seasons of “Mr. Selfridge” start streaming Nov. 22. Created by Emmy Award-winning writer Andrew Davies (Pride and PrejudiceBridget Jones’ Diary), “Mr. Selfridge” brings to life the story of American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge (Piven), the colorful and visionary founder of Selfridges, London’s lavish department store. Pioneering, reckless, and with an abundance of charm, Harry Selfridge created a theater of retail for early 1900s Londoners, where the latest topics or trends were showcased and traditions were challenged.

The six-part miniseries adapted from Hilary Mantel’s best-selling novels, “Wolf Hall,” begins streaming Nov. 10. A historical drama for a modern audience, this unromanticized re-telling lifts the veil on the internal struggles England faced on the brink of Reformation. From humble beginnings and with an enigmatic past, Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance) is the brilliant consigliere to King Henry VIII (Damian Lewis). Told from Cromwell’s perspective, “Wolf Hall” follows the complex machinations and back room dealings of this pragmatic and accomplished power broker who must serve king and country while dealing with deadly political intrigue, Henry VIII’s tempestuous relationship with Anne Boleyn (Claire Foy, “The Crown”) and the religious upheavals of the Protestant reformation.

The biography What the Durrells Did Next hits screens Nov. 11. Hosted by “The Durrells in Corfu” matriarch Keeley Hawes, it follows the true story behind one of the best-loved families in TV drama. Lifting the lid on every family secret, heartbreak and triumph, the program reveals how Corfu shaped the personalities and ambitions of each family member. It’s an outlandish story of African expeditions, global fame, heartbreak and the establishment of a zoo dedicated to saving endangered species. The film describes how young Gerry Durrell grew up to be a world-famous zoologist whose ideas on conservation revolutionized the roles of zoos forever, how Larry Durrell nearly won the Nobel Prize for literature — but was deemed to have too much sex in his books — and how flirtatious Margo stayed forever young on cruise ships across the world. With exclusive testimony from HRH Princess Anne, family members, experts, and the actors who brought these beloved characters to life, the show is packed with revelations and personal insights.

Streaming beginning May 10 is “Reborn,” a French crime-thriller taking witness-protection to a whole new level. Felon Alexis Marceau gives up his criminal friends in exchange for immunity.

He is working in Turin, Italy, as a construction worker when judge Delphine Baron offers to revoke his house arrest, in exchange for three months of service. This means working undercover at his old job where he and his partner ran a small shipping business controlling the traffic of illicit goods. Matthias is hesitant but accepts — no one knows he’s alive or will recognize his new face. But he knows the people, place and methods better than anyone. Once undercover and back in Dunkirk, Alexis struggles to keep away from his ex-wife and son. And to make matters worse, his affection for his old life returns — the camaraderie, the easy money and the adrenaline.
