Dawn French To Star In Delicious New Sky Drama

Dawn French (The Vicar of Dibley) is set to star in Delicious, a new four part drama written by Dan Sefton (Mr Selfridge) for Sky 1.

In Delicious, sensual and passionate cook Gina (Dawn French) is divorced from Leo Vincent (Iain Glen), a successful chef and hotel owner with whom she has a daughter. Leo made his fortune from Italian cooking, a skill he inherited from his ex-wife, and runs the idyllic Penrose Hotel in the Tamar Valley.

Since divorcing Gina, Leo’s empire has continued to grow, but now he shares his success with new wife Sam (Emilia Fox). However, Leo is keeping a secret which is set to upturn all of their lives. In a friendship born out of betrayal, Gina and Sam face the secrets and scandal that will bind them together in the most unlikely of circumstances.

Anne Mensah, Head of Drama for Sky, said in a press release: “It’s incredibly exciting to welcome Dawn French to Sky1… It’s funny, surprising and audacious but also compelling and emotional. Plus the wonderful Cornish countryside – it’s going to be a fabulous treat for our audience.”
