The drama miniseries "Dancing on the Edge" is set in 1930s London and follows a group of black jazz musicians, the Louis Lester Band, as it finds fame based on performing in front of London's elite. Despite traveling a roadblock-filled path -- much of the upper-class recoil at the thought of black musicians playing in polite society -- the city's more progressive socialites, including members of the royal household, take debonair leader Louis Lester and his cohorts under their wing. But when the band gets entangled in a shadowy world, it results in a suspected murder that could wreck its career.
