TV3’s new three-part drama ‘Trial of the Century’, which will air this spring, has wrapped production in Dublin.

‘Trial of the Century’ is directed by Maurice Sweeney. Lead writer is Hugh Travers, with screenplay written by Hugh Travers and Colin Murphy. The series is based on an original concept by Loosehorse and is produced by Claire McCaughley for Treasure Entertainment and Cormac Hargaden for Loosehorse Television.

‘Trial of the Century’ is described as a provocative take on historical storytelling, as Padraig Pearse - the leader of the 1916 rebellion - is put in the dock. In a trial that he was never afforded in real life, Pearse (played by Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) must defend the actions that changed the course of Irish history.

Filming took place in Green Street Courthouse in Smithfield which was the venue of several noted trials such as those of Wolfe Tone and Robert Emmet in 1803. Ronan Fox was the DoP.

The series will now move into post-production where it will be edited by John Murphy with Hugh Fox on Audio. Picture post production will happen in Outer Limits with Gary Curran as Colourist.

Apart from Tom Vaughan-Lawlor in the lead role, other well-known names that feature in the three-part special include Mark Huberman as George Gavan Duffy, Andrew Bennett as lead prosecutor Sebastian Banks, Aoibhinn McGinnity as mum Catherine Foster, Denis Conway as Pearse’s senior counsel and Anthony Brophy as Eoin MacNeill.

‘Trial of the Century’ will air on TV3 this April/May.
