RTÉ has announced that new comedy Finding Joy, which was created, written by and starring Irish actress Amy Huberman, has gone into production.
The Irish actress and writer, who began her career in 2002, is set to prove her formidable talent once again.
The new RTÉ series follows a single woman, Joy, after a painful breakup, who looks for happiness in all the wrong places.
Staring alongside Huberman is Aisling Bea, Hot Press cover star Laura Whitmore, Lochlann O’Mearain, Jennifer Rainsford and more. 'Finding Joy' is a warm, irreverent show with a lot of heart and laughs as Joy struggles with life, her friends and her world.
The actress herself 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. [...]
Justin Healy, Executive Producer for comedy in RTÉ is convinced of Huberman's abilitities:
‘Amy is naturally a very funny person, and in Finding Joy she brings that comedy gene to the fore. Her writing is sharp, witty and smart, and in this six-part series she has created engaging, relatable characters that will go down very well with the audience.'
The six-part comedy series, produced by Treasure Entertainment, begins shooting in Dublin this week.
