PBS Distribution has announced it will release complete series sets from its hit import series Mr. Selfridge and Inspector Lewis next month.

Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge: The Complete Series and Masterpiece: Inspector Lewis: The Complete Series will be released Tuesday October 8th.  Both full series sets will be released exclusively on DVD and can be ordered online direct via PBS’ online store.

Based on the real life Harry Selfridge, Mr. Selfridge follows the meteoric rise of the American businessman in early 20th Century London and his equally shocking downfall.  The series starred actor Jeremy Piven (PCU, Entourage, Serendipity) as the groundbreaking, playboy entrepreneur.  He was joined by Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, After You’ve Gone, Ghosted), Tom Goodman-Hill (The Imitation Game, Everest, Humans), Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street, Happy Valley, The Night Manager) and Frances O’Connor (The Missing, Artificial Intelligence: AI, Bedazzled) among many other accomplished actors and actresses on screen throughout the series’ four-season run.

The Wall Street Journal called the series “A treasure box of tales about love, loss, ambition, and the spirit of a new age” in its first season.  In its second season, The Los Angeles Times lauded the series as “lush and lovely.” The New York Daily News said of the series in its third season “visually glorious.”

Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge: The Complete Series will be spread across twelve discs and will retail for MSRP of $89.99.  It can be ordered online direct via PBS’ online store.

Also being released on Tuesday, October 8th from PBS Distribution will be Masterpiece: Inspector Lewis: The Complete Series.

Finally after eight seasons, one of the most beloved crime dramas on British television—and one of PBS’ most beloved imports—has come to its end.  The series just recently finished off its eighth and final season and released Season Eight on DVD and Blu-ray.  Now thanks to PBS Distribution, fans of the long-running crime drama can own the entire series for themselves on DVD.

Masterpiece: Inspector Lewis follows Inspector Robert Lewis (Kevin Whately—The English Patient, Peak Practice, The Broker’s Man) as he steps out of the shadow of his mentor Inspector Morse.  Lewis is joined by his partner Detective Sergeant James Hathaway (Laurence Fox—Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Becoming Jane, Gosford Park) as he takes on some of the most brutal and mysterious cases that Oxford, England has seen.

Masterpiece Inspector Lewis: The Complete Series will be released Tuesday, October 8th.  It will be spread across 18 discs and will retail for MSRP of $99.99.  It can be ordered online direct via PBS’ online store.
