Set in the early 1930’s, the period drama follows black jazz musicians, the Louis Lester Band, as they find fame among London’s upper classes.

While many dislike the presence of black performers, other more progressive socialites warmly welcome them. But, when someone is found murdered, the band’s world starts crumbling around them. 

The five-part series has an all-star cast, with appearances from Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew Goode, Anthony Head, Caroline Quentin, Mel Smith, Jacqueline Bisset and Jane Asher, plus The Paradise’s Joanna Vanderham, Merlin’s Angel Coulby and Entourage’s Janet Montgomery.
