A drama series about food, love and infidelity in Cornwall has been commissioned by Sky 1.
Stars Emilia Fox, Iain Glen and Sheila Hancock will join Dawn French in the cast of ‘Delicious’.
The four-part drama, written by Dan Sefton (‘Mr Selfridge’), is described as an ‘honest and compelling story of love, sex, lies and betrayal’ – in a culinary setting.
Dawn French plays the passionate cook Gina, who was once married to Iain Glen’s character Leo, a chef and hotel owner in Cornwall.
Leo owes much of his success to Gina’s exceptional cooking, but leaves her for the glamorous Sam (Emilia Fox). When Sam suspects Leo is having an affair, she confides in Gina, confident that she’ll recognise the signs – only to discover later that Gina herself has become the “other woman”.
Emilia Fox commented: “I’m absolutely delighted to be part of Sky’s new drama ‘Delicious’. As a starter it’s heaven to be working with Dawn French and Iain Glen again. For main course – an absolute treat to be working on such great scripts. For the perfect recipe – a brilliant crew, cast and production team. I can’t wait to tuck in!”
Iain Glen said: “The script for ‘Delicious’ was irresistible: funny, poignant and unpredictable. I can’t wait to dig my teeth into this feast of a drama.”
‘Delicious’ is expected to be broadcast later this year or early in 2017.
