Premium cable network Starz is slowly becoming something of a destination for fans of British television. Though you probably wouldn’t expect it, the network has been responsible for bringing several popular British programs to America over the past several years, including sci-fi sequel Torchwood: Miracle Day and lavish War of the Roses drama The White Queen.
Starz will now bring us period drama Dancing on the Edge, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, another British actor whose complicated name you should probably get used to spelling, because he’s about to have a breakout year with three films coming out, one of which is the basically guaranteed Best Picture nominee 12 Years a Slave. (Also? He’s an amazing actor.) Ejiofor is joined by a cast of notable actors, including Matthew Goode, John Goodman, Anthony Stewart Head, Merlin’s Angel Coulby, Doctor Who companion Jenna Coleman and The Paradise’s Joanna Vanderham.
