Comedy. Harriet is a potential candidate for the role of mayor of a small French village. But then her irresponsible and unpredictable brother Ed turns up.
Le Maire follows Harriet (Rosie Cavaliero - Jane Eyre), a potential candidate for the role of Mayor of Rachelais; the small French village that she and her husband Roy (Tim Key - Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa) have settled in. Their perfect little French life, away from the issues occurring in the UK, seems full of peace and 'tranquillité'. However, on the eve of the vote, her irresponsible and unpredictable brother Ed (Jonny Sweet) comes crashing into their continental lives (as well as the local vineyard), putting all of her plans into question.
