New RTÉ One Drama ‘Clean Break’ Goes Into Production
07 Nov 2014 : Seán Brosnan
Production has begun this week on a brand new four-part drama under the working title of ‘Clean Break’.

Produced for RTÉ by Octagon Films and 152 Productions and co-funded by the BAI ‘Clean Break’, set in Wexford, tells the tale of a community driven by love, greed, status and revenge.

‘Clean Break’ is a stand-alone original serial written by Billy Roche (‘The Eclipse’, ‘Trojan Eddie’) and directed by Gillies MacKinnon (‘The Playboys’, ‘Tara Road’) and Damien O’Donnell (‘Inside I’m Dancing’,‘East is East’).

Anna Valdes Hank is DOP of episodes one and four, to be directed by Gillies MacKinnon, while Peter Robertson is DOP of episodes two and three, to be directed by Damien O’Donnell with 24-7 Drama Ireland providing the equipment. Steven Davenport is the location manager. Post Production will take place at Screen Scene . Producers are Emma Burge, John Chapman, Suzanne McAuley and James Flynn.

Producer James Flynn (Octagon Films) said: ‘In partnership with 152 Productions, we are currently on location in Wexford shooting Billy Roche’s ‘Clean Break’ for RTÉ and are delighted to be working with two BAFTA-nominated/winning directors, Gillies McKinnon and Damien O’Donnell. Both of these directors highlight the cross-over phenomenon of the last ten years between cinema and high-end television drama and we firmly believe that these three independent, talented voices will give ‘Clean Break’ a powerful and imaginative narrative as well as a fresh and distinctive perspective.’

The cast includes Adam Fergus, Aidan McArdle, Simone Kirby, Damien Molony, Kelly Thornton and Ned Dennehy.

Broadcast details will be announced closer to transmission date.
