Amy Huberman teases new comedy series

The actress stars in new RTÉ series Striking Out

Amy Huberman has teased fans about a new comedy series that’s in the works.

The actress, who currently stars on RTÉ’s Striking Out, has revealed plans for a new show and admitted that she’s still writing the screenplay for her second book, I Wished For You, which is set for a movie adaptation entitled Bolt.

“I’ve been writing a screenplay of the second book for a couple of years in between babies and acting jobs so that’s been a long process.

“But we’ve got some funding for a comedy series so I have to sit down and write that!” she teased on The Ian Dempsey Show on Today FM.

The mum of two is currently playing the role of Tara Rafferty in RTÉ’s Striking Out, a solicitor who was set to marry Eric, played by Rory Keenan, but sadly finds out he is cheating on her with a colleague at her firm.

Speaking about the role, Amy revealed how she prepared and researched the legal system in Ireland – which included a trip to the courts.

“It had been a while since I had done drama, so I was like ‘I need to really know where I’m going with this. The partner took me down to the courts which was invaluable in knowing just the shorthand of how they deal with each other.

“We did have legal advisors, but I suppose just seeing it firsthand was so useful, seeing how the solicitors and barristers interact with each other and the formality with the judges and everything, I wouldn’t have known that!”

Watch Striking Out on Sunday at 9.30pm on RTÉ One.
