RTÉ release first trailer for new series Obituary
20 Sep 2023 : Luke Shanahan
RTÉ have released the first trailer for upcoming series Obituary, which will begin airing weekly on RTÉ One from September 26th.

The brand new six-part series is led by rising Irish actor Siobhán Cullen (The Bright Side, The Dry). Obituary was written by Irish writer Ray Lawlor (Le Ceangal), directed by John Hayes (Dublin Murders) and Oonagh Kearney (Five Letters to the Stranger Who Will Dissect My Brain), and produced by Nell Green (The Outfit, The Undeclared War).

Obituary is a dark comedy in which a newspaper falls into hard times and 24-year-old Obituarist Elvira Clancy (Cullen) is now being paid per obituary. When deaths trickle to a halt and work dries up, she soon discovers that by murdering the residents of her small town, she will not only earn more money but discover an untapped bloodlust. The only problem for her lies with the paper’s new hire, Emerson Stafford, a suspicious crime correspondent who she begins to develop feelings for.

Michael Smiley (Bad Sisters, Bloodlands) joins Cullen as Elvira’s protective and troubled father Ward Clancy, and Ronan Raftery (The Rook, Mortal Engines,) stars as ambitious new crime correspondent Emerson Stafford. The cast also includes Danielle Galligan (Lakelands), David Ganly (Moon Knight), Noni Stapleton (Penny Dreadful), Éabha Moore (A Sunken Place), Paul Tylak (Harry Wild), Fiona Browne (Red Rock), Eva Hein West (Lift), and Shashi Rami (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).

Paddy Hayes of Magamedia and APC Studios’ Laurent Boissel feature as executive producers on the series, which is made with support from Screen Ireland, WRAP Fund, and the Coimisiún na Meán, formerly the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland. In the US, Obituary will stream exclusively on Hulu later this year.

Obituary airs on RTÉ One from September 26th.
