Svengali tells the story of Dixie (Jonny Owen), a postman from South Wales, and a music fanatic. All his life he’s dreamed of discovering a great band and
then one day, trawling through YouTube, he finds them… ‘The Premature Congratulations’. He hunts them down and offers them his management services. They are young, arrogant, sexy and utterly magnificent. Putting their demo on a cassette tape, Dixie heads out onto the streets of London…
Innocent, wide-eyed Dixie embarks on a roller coaster ride through the most ‘infamous’ industry of them all. His partner and his sanity through it all is his soulmate Michelle
(Vicky McClure). Every day is a battle for Dixie, totally broke and working for nothing to get his beloved band gigs, their egos grow with their stardom. The more successful
‘The Prems’ get, the greater the chances are of Dixie losing them. He has to decide what are his real priorities in life… his love of music or his love for Michelle.
