RTÉ have a released the first trailer for their 1916 Drama Series, Rebellion, online. 

Rebellion is a five-part serial drama which charts the violent birth of modern Ireland and the series is set over a 3 week period around the Easter Rising in 1916. 

The series stars among others, Love/Hate alumni Brian Gleeson, Ruth Bradley, Charlie Murphy and John Connors, Penny Dreadful star Sarah Greene and Lady Caitlyn Stark herself, Michelle Fairley. 

If the beautiful cover of U2's 'With Or Without You' is anything to go by we'll need tissues at the ready when this one airs. 

The trailer will air during tonight's Late Late Toy Show ad breaks. 

The one off drama series is likely to be RTÉ's showpiece production as part of their 1916 centenary schedule.
