Dancing on the Edge – a miniseries event inspired by accounts of the Duke Ellington Band mingling with English high society during the early 1030s – is set to premiere on Starz following the finale of the network’s The White Queen. The bliss accompanying the Louis Lester Band’s embrace by the British elite vanishes when members of the band become entangled in a murder conspiracy.
Dancing on the Edge’s star-studded cast includes Oscar®-nominee Chiwetal Ejiofor, Matthew Goode, Jaqueline Bisset and John Goodman. The five-part miniseries premieres on October 19th at 10/9C, following the finale of The White Queen, before moving to its regular timeslot for the remainder of its run.
