Give it the old soft shoe and shake away the blues as you experience all the jazz and razzmatazz of swinging 1930s London in a brand new British drama with a twist. Experience a story of love, music and ambition first hand, set to a sensational soundtrack in the toe-tapping debut of Dancing On The Edge out on DVD on 11th March 2013, courtesy of ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

With an outstanding cast line-up including; three-time Golden Globe® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, (Dirty Pretty Things, Children of Men) as Louis, the leader of the Louis Lester Band; Matthew Goode, (Watchmen, A Single Man) as Stanley, the music critic who looks to change the music scene of London; Golden Globe® winner John Goodman, (The Artist, The Big Lebowski) as Masterson, the richest man in the world with a dark secret; four-time Golden Globe® nominee Jacqueline Bisset, (Joan of Arc, Under the Volcano) as the reclusive and mysterious Lady Cremone and Jane Montgomery, (Black Swan, Entourage) as designer and jazz enthusiast Sarah.

Stand-out performances also come from Anthony Head, (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Merlin) as the band's patron and backer, Donaldson; Angel Coulby, (Merlin, The Jacket) as smooth lead vocalist Jessie; Joanna Vanderham, (The Paradise, The Runaway) as Pamela, a socialite with a love for music and finally with support from the great Mel Smith, (The Princess Bride, Hustle) as Shlesinger.

Directed by Stephen Poliakoff C.B.E (The Lost Prince, Glorious 39) and reverberating with an exceptional retro score with music and lyrics by Adrian Johnston (Accused, Above Suspicion, Brideshead Revisited), Dancing On The Edge is sure to put a spring in your step.

In the aftermath of the Great Depression, just before the dawn of the Second World War, the UK's capital city found itself within a time of extraordinary change. Bubbling beneath the once austere surface of London's streets, an underground movement was taking the city by storm; the birth of jazz music. The Louis Lester Band is at the forefront of the emerging jazz scene and rise to fame despite being black musicians in a time of racial discrimination.

The sensational new musicians are treated to a world of decadence they have never known before. Requested in the arena of the most stylist and fashionable clubs of the era... as long as they remember to enter and exit via the back door.

These eager entertainers are caught between two worlds; on the one hand being honoured by the elusive invitation to perform at venues in the company of high class individuals and royals, whilst the consistent threat of their 'inferior' social station lies behind every corner. The sudden success begins to go to their heads they start to become entangled in the shadowy and seductive world of high society, until a tragic murder of one of their band members places them at the top of the suspect list. This dark and unexpected turn of events make Louis and his band members re-consider their life plans as they prepare to sacrifice everything they hold dear in the struggle for survival.

This spectacular new period drama, set between 1931 and 1933, transports the viewer to a time where music seems to transcend the divisions of class and race, until fear and hate once again threatens to upset this temporary equilibrium.
