Greetings from Detroit Public TV.

Dear ,

The hit drama Call the Midwife returns with all new episodes with more births, babies and bicycling, plus blossoming romance.

Call-the-Midwife-Season-2.jpgThis moving, intimate, funny and true-to-life series, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, tells colorful stories of midwifery and families in London's East End in the 1950s. Premiering Sunday, 3/31 at 8pm ET, season two opens with Jenny Lee's birthday. The next day she takes on a new patient who's involved in an abusive relationship. In other events, Trixie and Sister Evangelina board a Swedish cargo ship to care for the captain's daughter.

During season two, we'll continue our blog, Modern Day Midwives, with stories from local midwives from Wayne State University and University of Michigan, discussing how obstetrics have changed in relation to the 1950's era Call the Midwife.

Jeremy Piven stars as the upstart American who taught the English how to shop in Masterpiece Classic's new series Mr. Selfridge

Mr.-Selfridge-Big.jpgAt the unfashionable end of Oxford Street in 1909 London, an American retail tycoon arrives to jettison fusty British tradition and open the biggest and finest department store the world has ever seen: Selfridges. Three-time Emmy winner Jeremy Piven (in his first television appearance since his iconic role as Hollywood agent Ari Gold in Entourage) stars as Harry Gordon Selfridge, the flamboyant entrepreneur and showman seeking to provide London's shoppers with the ultimate merchandise and the ultimate thrill.

A sumptuous new series created by Emmy Award-winning writer Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House), the program will air on Masterpiece Classic Sundays, March 31 through May 19, 2013 at 9pm ET. Watch a preview >
