The Trouble with Maggie Cole

Sundays, Oct. 18 - Nov. 22 at 8pm on WKAR-HD 23. 1 & STREAMING | See what happens when idle gossip escalates out of control and starts to affect people’s lives. 

Set in the picturesque village of Thurlbury, the series centers on Maggie Cole (French), the self-appointed oracle of this close-knit community, who, when interviewed by a local radio reporter, shares one too many juicy details about some notable residents in the community. The series chronicles the fallouts, fights and consequences resulting from the broadcast, not sparing a soul in the small town.
