Dancing On The Edge

Mondays at 6 p.m.

"Dancing On The Edge" is a five-part miniseries set in London in the early 1930s and follows a black jazz band known as the Louis Lester Band. Initially shocked by black musicians performing in polite society, many recoil, but London's progressive socialites take the band under their wing. When the band's manager Wesley is deported, it forces the rest of the band to move on without him. The musicians play for the Prince of Wales who elevates their status to the heights of early pop fame. But they become entangled in the shadowy world of socialites, which results in a suspected murder. The walls begin to close in on Louis and the other members until they realize that escape from England may be their only chance for safety. From acclaimed writer and director Stephen Poliakoff ("The Lost Prince"), this ensemble mystery features an all-star cast led by Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years A Slave") and Matthew Goode ("The Good Wife," "The Imitation Game"), and also stars Jacqueline Bisset (2014 Golden Globe winner for Best Supporting Actress).
