The Paradise Premieres on ThinkTV, CET

If you’re longing for a fresh dose of turn-of-the-19th-century fashion, then get ready for Masterpiece Classic: The Paradise.


This new British drama comes to ThinkTV16 and CET at 9pm on Sunday nights Oct. 6 through Nov. 17. The story, based on the classic French novel by Emile Zola, follows the stories of a gal named Denise Lovett who arrives in a booming northern city and takes a job at The Paradise, the glittering department store across from her uncle’s drapery shop.


Of course it’s not long before Denise’s beauty and talent catch the eye of the store’s dashing owner. Can Denise navigate the competing personalities of the ladieswear department and can her ingenuity save the day when she meets the challenges of a shop girl?


Here’s a preview of the first season of The Paradise thanks to BBC:
