Order the carriage, raise your credit limit, and hurry to town: The Paradise is open for business!
Denise Lovett (Joanna Vanderham) is the bright-eyed country girl who finds more than just shop-girl work when she brings her clever ideas and ambition to The Paradise, a glamorous, Victorian-era department store. John Moray (Emun Elliott) is the store’s dashing and enigmatic owner, an entrepreneur with more than his share of passion -- and secrets.
Critics were sold on The Paradise, Season 1. “The Paradise…sparks and shimmers,” marveled The New York Daily News. “Compelling [and] addictive,” enthused The Philadelphia Enquirer. Variety called it “impeccably cast, extremely handsome…another first-rate costume drama.”
The Paradise Season 2 airs in eight dazzling episodes on MASTERPIECE, Sundays, September 28-November 16, 2014, at 8pm ET – a special time!
Created by Bill Gallagher (Lark Rise to Candleford), and based on Émile Zola’s beloved classic novel, Au Bonheur des Dames, The Paradise also stars Elaine Cassidy (A Room with a View), Sarah Lacashire (Last Tango in Halifax), Stephen Wight (Sherlock), and new cast members for Season 2 Ben Daniels (House of Cards), Adrian Scarborough (Upstairs Downstairs) and others.
