Emilia Fox, Iain Glen and Sheila Hancock join new Dawn French drama
Emilia Fox, Iain Glen and Sheila Hancock will join the previously-announced Dawn French in the cast of new Sky 1 drama Delicious.
Delicious is a new four-part drama starring Dawn French as exceptional chef Gina whose ex-husband Leo (Glen) is now a successful entrepreneur on the back of his former wife’s abilities. Leo has since left Gina for the glamorous Sam (Fox), but his restaurant and hotel business has continued to thrive.
When Sam begins to suspect Leo is having another affair, she confides in Gina – completely unaware that Leo’s ex-wife is the ‘other woman’. Secrets and scandals are revealed, but one question is uncertain: will Sam and Gina destroy each other or the man who betrayed them both?
First announced in April, Delicious is written by Mr Selfridge writer Dan Sefton and will be directed by The Wedding Date‘s Clare Kilner.
Emilia Fox said: “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 added: “The script for Delicious was irresistible. Funny, poignant and unpredictable. I can’t wait to dig my teeth into this feast of a drama.”
