Strike up the band
Chiwetel Ejiofor leads an all-star cast in “Dancing on the Edge” (8 p.m. Saturday, Starz), a five-part miniseries loosely based on Duke Ellington’s experiences in Europe during the 1930s. Adrian Johnston, who contributed to the award-winning score for “Kinky Boots,” provides original music.
Looks like Loretta Devine’s shaky stint as a teacher on “Boston Public” isn’t keeping her from going back to school. She returns to the classroom for “Saving Westbrook High” (6 p.m. Sunday, UP), a new movie in which parents and instructors try to keep their schools open.

Lee Majors must be fuming that he wasn’t asked to re-create his iconic role in “The Incredible Bionic Man” (8 p.m. Sunday, Smithsonian). He’s been replaced by an actual 6-foot-tall robot created by some of the world’s leading laboratories. I guess that’s OK, but nobody had better try to build an artificial “Fall Guy.” Neal Justin
