We absolutely love seeing Irish talent thriving!
So we’re super excited about this new show that has a plethora of Irish actors at the fore.
That includes Keith Duffy’s son – Jay Duffy.
The new series, called Northern Lights, will contain six episodes and is set to premiere on TG4 next month.
According to the description: “The beautifully poetic images shine a light on the topics of grief, human connection, joy and the power of hope and humour in the face of darkness which are explored in the Irish drama written by playwright and actor, Stephen Jones.”
Alongside Jay, there is Line of Duty and Jurassic World star Elva Trill, Love/Hate actor Stephen Jones and Jennifer Heylen.
So what is the show about?
Well the synopsis reads: “Set in Dublin North City Centre’s Capel Street and Northside Quays, Northern Lights tells the story of two grieving strangers, Lloyd (Stephen Jones) and Áine (Elva Trill), whose worlds collide when Lloyd notices Áine standing on Grattan bridge.
“Fearing the worst, he decides to intervene. A series of revelations, confessions, secrets and lies follow leading to Lloyd and Áine becoming beacons of light for one another when they need it most, negotiating the obvious gender politics and initial awkwardness of meeting in such unusual circumstances.
“As Lloyd and Aíne’s friendship develops, the show deals with the stories of their respective partners, Seán (Jay Duffy) and Denise (Jennifer Heylen). It soon becomes apparent that both are dealing with major grief and tragedy.
“Honest and heartfelt with moments of disarming humour and joy, Northern Lights explores how resilient people can be in the face of tragedy and is ultimately a story about hope.”
Northern Lights will premiere exclusively on TG4 next month.
