New Irish Legal Drama STRIKING OUT is Nearly Ready for you to Binge Upon
A new legal drama set in Dublin and starring Amy Huberman, is about to hit Ireland, and then U.S.A.
Acorn Media has partnered with Blinder Films, DCD Rights, and RTÉ to co-produce the new Irish legal drama Striking Out. This four-part, character-driven drama series centres on the tumultuous professional and personal life of Dublin-based solicitor Tara (Amy Huberman) and her fledgling law firm.
Filled with charm, humour, humanity and emotional complexity, Striking Out will offer an addictively engaging snapshot of contemporary life in Ireland’s capital.
The series will also be shown in the UK, Eire, Australia and New Zealand. The series will premiere on RTE in early 2017 and will make its U.S. Premiere on Acorn TV, a North American streaming service for world-class TV from Britain and beyond, in 2017.
Striking Out began filming around Dublin in July 2016 and co-stars Rory Keenan (War & Peace, Peaky Blinders), Emmet Byrne, Fiona O’Shaughnessy (Utopia), and Neil Morrissey (Line of Duty, Grantchester, The Night Manager).
In Striking Out, when Tara discovers her fiancé and fellow solicitor Eric (Rory Keenan) has been cheating with a colleague – she leaves him and the prestigious law firm they worked at to set up her own practice specialising in family and divorce law. Working alongside her new team, including mentor and friend Vincent (Neil Morrissey), and tech guru and private detective Meg (Fiona O’Shaughnessy), Tara’s often surprising, sometimes poignant and always intriguing cases will not only put her in direct conflict with influential families and the legal and political establishment, but also challenge her own personal morals. But throughout their findings, fallouts and resolutions, Tara discovers that this unexpected road is actually more thrilling, rewarding and fulfilling than the path she nearly took was ever going to be.
Here is a preview
The series is created by James Phelan (Wrecking the Rising), and written by Rob Heyland (Between the Lines, Whistleblowers), Mike O’Leary (Eipic, Misfits) and James Phelan.
