Arlington, Va. – April 29, 2015 – PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing “DANCING ON THE EDGEon DVD and Blu-ray. In the early 1930s London, the black jazz group known as the Louis Lester Band is on the rise. Managed by the compassionate yet short-tempered Wesley Holt, the band lands a gig at the Imperial Hotel, thanks to the cunning journalist, Stanley Mitchell. They prove to be a hit, and their star begins to rise. Countless aristocrats—including the royal family—ask the band to play at parties, catching the eye of the ambitious American businessman Walter Masterson and his enthusiastic employee, Julian. But just as the band's success balloons, tragedy strikes, setting off a chain of events that may put an end to it all.
