Michael is best known for his hilarious indie remixes of viral Irish and UK moments – including Nadine Coyle’s infamous age scandal and Big Brother’s ‘David’s Dead’ moment.
Set in the fictional village of Duneen, ‘Holding’ will see police officer Sergeant PJ Collins (played by Conleth Hill) try to solve a serious crime, after the body of long-lost local legend Tommy Burke is discovered.
Brenda Fricker, Siobhán McSweeney, Charlene McKenna, Helen Behan and Pauline McLynn will also star in the series, which is being directed by Kathy Byrne.
