If you're missing your RTÉ chat show fix this summer and 'The Late Late Show' re-runs just aren't doing it for you anymore, then you can get stuck into this new interview series presented Brendan O'Connor.

Kicking off on Friday, August 17th, the three-part series will be called 'Brendan O’Connor’s Time Out' and will see the host conduct in-depth, one-to-one interviews with high profile people who have lived full lives, have a story to tell and something to say about the world we live in.

RTÉ said in a statement: "With no audience, no gimmicks, bells or whistles, the show sees Brendan and his guest sitting down for a real and truthful chat about the things that really matter to them. Discussing the big moments that have turned out to be life defining events for them, they’ll reveal what makes them the person they are today and what they have learned from those experiences."

Filming for 'Brendan O’Connor’s Time Out' is currently underway with the host set to chat to Majella O’Donnell, Michael Harding and, at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, Chic frontman Nile Rodgers.

Brendan said: "I'm more excited about this show than anything I’ve done before... Usually when you talk to people they tell you how they see themselves but I often wonder how true that is - is it just the story they've decided to tell people? So, the guests pick the five most important people or things that happened in their lives, the moments of truth as it were.'

The first episode airs on Friday, August 17th at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
