BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 20 (UPI) -- The British miniseries "Dancing on the Edge" will premiere in the United States Oct. 19, Starz announced Tuesday.

Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew Goode, Jacqueline Bisset and John Goodman, the five-part drama will air on consecutive Saturday nights at 9 p.m.

"Inspired by true accounts of the phenomenal Duke Ellington Band mingling with the future duke of Windsor Edward VIII in Europe, 'Dancing on the Edge' takes place in London during the early 1930s," a synopsis said. "The story illustrates the journey of a group of black jazz musicians -- the Louis Lester Band -- as they steadily rise to stardom, a result of performing at various elite social gatherings hosted by London's aristocrats."

The miniseries event will conclude with a special hour-long epilogue entitled "Interviewing Louis" Nov. 23, Starz said.
