Sky’s Delicious gets a second series
Sky 1’s drama Delicious, starring Dawn French and Emilia Fox, has been commissioned for a second series.
From Bandit Television, the series will once again be written by Dan Sefton (The Good Karma Hospital, Trust Me) and executive-produced by Phillippa Giles for Bandit and Anna Ferguson for Sky.
Series One performed well for the channel, delivering its largest audience for a Sky 1 original drama in 2016. It was filmed on location in Cornwall, using backdrops including Pentillie Castle and Estate, which ‘played’ the fictional Penrose Hotel; Port Eliot Estate and the village of Calstock in the Tamar Valley.
PI subscribers can log in for more details on the project including the likely shooting schedule and line producer.
PI currently has listings for more than 370 development projects, including major feature films such as the Alexander McQueen biopic and high-end TV dramas including Press and Les Miserables.
