Amy Huberman’s new RTÉ show is is facing some problematic scripting issues.
The new RTÉ show, Cheaters is a legal drama in which Amy has the starring role however, the producers of the show are now under major pressure as their original script is facing criticism.
RTÉ have high standards for the script due to the complexity of the legal plot so bosses have requested it to be re-written to achieve the expected standards.
An insider told the Irish Mail on Sunday that the head of drama at the station has set the bar very high and the scripts have to be re-written to meet her expectations.
They said, “This is the Love/Hate slot and Jane Gogan (RTÉ’s head of drama) has very high standards.
“The fact is that a lot of the legal jargon did not meet with these standards and were more suited to a comedy than a drama.
“As a result the scripts were sent back to be rewritten, which is a common practice with television dramas.
“The problem is that there is a window for filming which cannot be missed and they have to be finished by the time the court holidays have ended.”
The source also said that the solicitors who have been recruited to help out with the script and advise on legal matters are speeding up the process greatly.
They said, “Cheaters has been in development for a number of months with two legal advisers working with the writers from the early stages and to advise on the legal elements of the storyline.
“The solicitors who have been brought on board to help out have been working around the clock and that has helped.”
We can’t wait to tune into Cheaters!
