The Trouble with Maggie Cole

The Trouble with Maggie Cole is a drama series centering on Maggie Cole (Dawn French), the self-appointed oracle of a close-knit community. When a radio journalist interviews Maggie about local life, she gives him far more detail and embellishment about the locals and their personal lives than he was counting on. Following the broadcast, Maggie gets into trouble as the fallout disrupts the lives of some of her fellow residents. Maggie also has to face some dark secrets that her own family has been harbouring.
