BBC Two’s star-studded five-part period drama Dancing On The Edge centers on a black jazz band in early 1930s London and debuts Monday in the UK. We’ve learned that Encore is in negotiations for the U.S. rights to the miniseries that stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew Goode, John Goodman, Jacqueline Bisset, Angel Coulby, Anthony Head, Janet Montgomery and Jenna-Louise Coleman. Stephen Poliakoff created the show tracing the rise of the Louis Lester Band as they find fame amongst the parties and performances of London’s upper class society. Although many recoil, the city’s more progressive socialites, including members of the Royal Household, take the band under their wing. Ruby Film and Television produces the series for BBC Two, backed by Endgame Entertainment, Playground, Creative England and LipSync Productions. Producers are Faye Ward and Nicky Kentish Barnes; Poliakoff exec produces with Alison Owen and Paul Trijbits. ITV Studios Global Entertainment is distributing outside the U.S. Here’s the trailer:
