The Irish version of ‘Football’s Next Star’ has wrapped filming and is currently in post-production at Screen Scene in Dublin.
Produced by Tyrone Productions for RTÉ, the show finished filming last weekend with scenes shot in locations including Dublin, Limerick and Glasgow. The show follows 10 talented young soccer hopefuls who battle it out to win a place at Celtic’s Youth Academy in Glasgow.
Westlife singer Nicky Byrne is the show’s presenter, with the format originally developed by Sky TV. The Irish version for Tyrone has been directed by Paul Golding (Strictly Come Dancing). Noleen Golding (OMG! Jedward’s Dream Factory) is the producer, while Patricia Carroll is the executive producer for Tyrone.
Eight 25-minute episodes of the series are scheduled to broadcast on RTE Two in September.
