'Red Rock'
All 80 episodes of TV3 soap ‘Red Rock’ have been acquired by BBC Worldwide in a deal understood to be over €500,000.

‘Red Rock’ was launched in January 2015 and received acclaim, last year winning Best Soap, Best Director (for Lisa Mulcahy) and the People’s Choice Award at the IFTA Gala Television Awards. The show was subsequently acquired by Amazon Prime in a deal understood to be over €1m, where it premiered last month.

Check out our interview with director Lisa Mulcahy here.

Based around a busy Dublin Garda station in a fictional coastal town, ‘Red Rock’ charts the life and dramas of a community enveloped by a feud, through the eyes of those who police it. The show is produced by Element and Company Pictures for TV3 and stars Denise McCormack, Jane McGrath, Sean Mahon and Cathy Belton. Ciaran Tanham shoots the series, which was created by Peter McKenna with Gareth Edwards serving as the Executive Producer currently.
