‘Vicar Of Dibley’ Fans Will Love This New Dawn French ITV Drama
ITV is bringing out a brand new comedy with Dawn French at the helm - and it's taking us right back to Dibley.
The Vicar Of Dibley was a huge hit when it aired between 1994 and 1998, centring around devoted Geraldine Granger as she navigated the quirky members of her small-town parish.
And the new six-part series, The Trouble with Maggie Cole, sounds *pretty* familiar, starring Dawn as a self-appointed community oracle in a quaint little town, with lots of quirky characters looking up to her.
That is... until she makes a very unfortunate slip up.
Set in the picturesque coastal town of Thurlbury, the drama starts to unravel after Maggie (Dawn) gets invited onto a local radio show, and delves into far more detail about her neighbours than she should have.
She's then faced with furious backlash from those she named and shamed, and also has to face some dark secrets from her only family's past that have been lingering out of sight.

In the weeks following the show's broadcast, Maggie sees the crushing effect that gossip can have on a local community first-hand.
She's been with her husband Mark for almost four decades and her son Jamie and his wife Becka live close by.
But will they stick by as everyone turns against her?
Dawn French isn't the only big signing for the Devon-based show, which previously had the working title of Glass Houses.
Coronation Street and Broadchurch actress Julie Hesmondhalgh will also be starring, as her best friend Jill, while Mark Heap (Upstart Crow, The Midnight Gang) will star as Maggie's husband Peter, Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On, Sally4Ever) as school secretary Karen and Patrick Robinson (Him, Mount Pleasant) as handsome novelist, Marcus.
The Trouble with Maggie Cole will premiere on ITV on Wednesday March 4th at 9pm.
