The BBC has released pictures for Stephen Poliakoff’s new drama ‘Dancing On The Edge‘ due to air on BBC Two on Monday 4th February at 9pm.
The five-part series set in the early 1930s follows the ‘Louis Lester Band’ – a black jazz band as they find fame amongst the parties and performances of upper class society in the capital. Initially shocked by black musicians performing in polite society, many recoil, but London’s progressive socialites take the band under their wing.
Starring in the series is, Chiwetel Ejiofor (The Shadow Line), Matthew Goode (A Single Man), Jacqueline Bisset (The Deep), Janet Montgomery (Spies Of Warsaw), Joanna Vanderham (The Paradise), Tom Hughes (Silk), Angel Coulby (Merlin), and Wunmi Mosaku (The Body Farm).
Mel Smith (Director of The Tall Guy), Anthony Head (Merlin), Caroline Quentin (Kiss Me Kate), and Jane Asher (Holby City) also star.
