Finding Joy was written by and will star Amy, alongside a host of famous faces.
The six-part comedy series, produced by Treasure Entertainment, begins shooting in Dublin this week and follows a single woman, Joy, after a painful breakup who looks for happiness in all the wrong places.
It will also star Aisling Bea, Laura Whitmore, Lochlann O’Mearain, Jennifer Rainsford, Catherine Walker, Paul Reid, Hannah Scott and Mark Doherty.
The comedy explores the many amusing ways we seek happiness and fulfilment in these modern digital times by following 34-year-old Joy, who is just trying to get on with her life after a recent break up from her long-term boyfriend, Aidan. Finding Joy is set to be a warm, irreverent show with a lot of heart and laughs as Joy struggles with life, her friends and her world.
Speaking about the project, Amy 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.
“I’m delighted to continue my collaboration with Treasure Entertainment with whom I’ve had a long-standing working relationship and am thrilled that both Acorn and RTÉ are partnering with us on this venture.”
