PASADENA, Calif. — Jeremy Piven, who played the famously mercurial agent Ari Gold on the HBO series “Entourage,” is heading across the pond and back in time to play the title character in the new PBS period drama “Mr. Selfridge.” The 10½-hour series, which kicks off Sunday at 9 p.m. on Channel 2, chronicles Selfridge’s journey to England in 1909 and both his business and personal affairs. After averaging 8.5 million viewers in the United Kingdom, the series has already been picked up for a second season. Piven chatted with reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
