In the 1930s, a black jazz band rises to fame and becomes entangled in intrigue, mystery, and suspense of the London society. Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew Goode, and Joanna Vanderham.
This miniseries has a lot going for it, but it fell flat. The story is discombobulated with a mixture of racism, poverty, and politics. While the series has some great actors lending their talents, they don’t help the story along. The story revolves around a murder that has little suspense and little plot development. Even though the setting is beautiful, there is little feeling of the 1930s, but the jazz music warms the show up. However, I would say this series is not worth the watch.
