It's been a while since we had a good RTE drama to sink our teeth into, but on New Year's Day we will get just that when 'Striking Out' debuts. The four-part legal drama stars Amy Huberman and Neil Morrisey and we guarantee it will hook you in from the word go.
Huberman plays Tara, a young solicitor about to marry the man of her dreams until she catches him in bed with someone else on her hen night. She then quits her job at the prestigious law firm they worked at together and decides to, yep, strike out on her own. All with the help of her mentor, fellow solicitor Vincent Pike, played by former Men Behaving Badly star, Neil Morrissey.
There's a bang of The Good Wife off this, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, and while there are similarities, this is a legal drama very much about contemporary Dublin life, from the goings-on among the legal and political establishments to the hipster cafe Tara finds her new office in.
Fantastic performances, as well as some stunning shots of Dublin, will make this your new favourite show in January.
We chatted to both Amy and Neil about the upcoming series earlier in the week, take a look below:
Striking Out begins on Sunday, 1st January, at 9.35pm.
