F&F Ireland Exclusively at Tesco Sponsor Finding Joy on RTÉ One
Finding Joy, written by and starring Amy Huberman launched with a premiere screening last night in Dublin, ahead of the television premiere tonight.
The new RTÉ One comedy series is sponsored by F&F exclusively at Tesco.
Finding Joy is a six-part comedy series starting tonight [Wednesday, October 10th] on RTÉ One at 9.35pm. The show stars Amy Huberman (Threesome, Cold Feet, Striking Out) as Joy, a woman who finds herself thrust into the limelight as she tries to get over a painful break-up. As she copes with an unwanted new job as a hapless Vlogger, Joy is forced to change her comfortably ordered existence as she figures out what to do now that she’s lost the love of her life.
Fans were given a sneak peek of the series at a special screening in Dublin’s Point Village yesterday evening with Amy joined by other members of the cast including Jenny Rainsford (Fleabag), Lochlann O’Mearáin (Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope), Hannah James Scott, Paul Reid (Rebellion), David O’Doherty and Fern the Dog.
Amy Huberman said: “I can’t believe tomorrow is the day that my new baby Finding Joy is going to be born into the world at 9.35pm on RTÉ One. It is a little bit scary, I am quietly terrified, but I hope people enjoy it and find the joy watching it!”
Shooting on Finding Joy took place at locations around Dublin over the summer. The series is produced for RTÉ by Rob Walpole and Rebecca O’Flanagan at Treasure Entertainment, directed by Kieron J Walsh (Jump, The Savage Eye) and Director of Photography is Cathal Watters (Peaky Blinders). RTÉ is co-producing with Acorn Media Enterprises. The series also features Aisling Bea, Laura Whitmore, Catherine Walker and Mark Doherty.
