If the insider preview is anything to go by, this is a funny and relatable show we can look forward to.
RTÉ has announced today that new comedy Finding Joy, created, written by and starring Amy Huberman has gone into production.
The six-part comedy series begins shooting in Dublin this week and follows a single woman, Joy, after a painful breakup who looks for happiness in all the wrong places.
The cast line-up spells good things from this show. Finding Joy also stars Aisling Bea, Laura Whitmore, Lochlann O’Mearain, Jennifer Rainsford, Catherine Walker, Paul Reid, Hannah Scott and Mark Doherty.
The series is being produced by Rob Walpole and Rebecca O’Flanagan, directed by Kieron J Walsh (Jump, The Savage Eye) and Director of Photography is Cathal Watters (Peaky Blinders) – so we know it’s going to look super sleek.
Finding Joy explores the many amusing ways we seek happiness and fulfilment in these modern digital times by following 34-year-old Joy, who is just trying to get on with her life after a recent break up from her long-term boyfriend, Aidan.
It is described as a warm, irreverent show with a lot of heart and laughs as Joy struggles with life, her friends and her world.
Amy Huberman said: ‘I’m thrilled and excited to be starting on this adventure, Finding Joy. I’ve thoroughly loved the writing process and now can’t wait to start filming and see the world and all the characters come to life.’
