Comedian Dawn French will star in Delicious, a new four-part event drama for Sky 1.

“Cornwall, summer, sunshine and the other S word – it will be Delicious fun.” – Dawn French

Set in the stunning Cornish countryside, Delicious is a surprising and compelling story of love, heartbreak, food and female friendship. When your best friend is your husband’s ex – can you ever really be friends or will your secrets eventually overwhelm you?

Written by Dan Sefton and made by Bandit Television for Sky 1, Delicious follows sensual and passionate cook Gina (French) who was once married to Leo Vincent, a successful entrepreneur, chef and hotel owner, with whom she shares a daughter. Leo made his fortune from his exceptional Italian cooking – a family tradition he inherited from his ex-wife – and runs the idyllic Penrose Hotel in the Tamar Valley.

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

“It’s incredibly exciting to welcome Dawn French to Sky1. We’ve been wanting to work with her for a long time and Delicious is just the perfect project. 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.” – Anne Mensah, Head of Drama, Sky

Broadcast details will be issued by Sky at a later date.
