RTÉ Television and Independent Commissions

Welcome to RTÉ's commissioning website

RTÉ works in partnership with independent producers to create many of Ireland's favourite television programmes.

As programme-makers, we work together in one of the most competitive broadcasting environments in the world - nearly nine in ten Irish homes are multi-channel. We compete for viewers against some of the world's largest commercial broadcasters and the world's best-funded public service broadcaster.

Our schedules are built on original Irish content, and we need your ideas and production skill to produce the shows that our audiences want to watch. For more information please click here. More...

This Crowded House

This Crowded House is a new four part series for RTÉ2 that intervenes in the not-so-unusual phenomenon of adults in their 20s and 30s who are living at home with their parents. In July, latest figures from the Central Statistics Office revealed that almost 460,000 adults over 18 still live at home. It confirms the Eurostat 2016 survey that found that almost 23% - or 1 in 4 Irish adults - over 25 are living in the family home.

Presented by Brendan Courtney, This Crowded House follows the journey of eight different Irish families as their adult children try to figure out how to move out. Brendan helps these adult children explore their options in this current tricky housing market, as well as helping them get on the right financial path to independent futures, calling on the necessary expertise where needed.

Transmission: Tuesday's from 31st October @ 21.30 RTÉ2

Say Yes To The Dress

The ten part series was filmed in a new couture section of Vows bridal store based in Blarney Business Park in Cork, stocked with stunning dresses from all over the world. Cameras will follow brides through the bridal salon as they try on all the styles, colours and patterns to then face their families and friends in the hope that they will Say Yes to the Dress.

Franc said, "I am so excited to be presenting the Irish version of Say Yes To The Dress. As an international wedding planner I have travelled both home and abroad with my brides to find their perfect dress. I could write a book on the amazing experiences I have shared travelling the globe from Hollywood to Paris, London to New York. I am really looking forward to the journey that I am going to take now with my Irish brides on their quest to find their perfect dress."

Hundreds of brides-to-be applied to take part and over 40 have been selected to feature in the series as they hunt for the perfect combination of lace, silk, taffeta, beading, sparkles, trains, tiaras and veils.

The format is an Irish spin off from the hugely popular American series. The original show follows the team at Kleinfeld Bridal, the Manhattan-based bridal salon as the team bend over backwards to make each bride's experience unforgettable. Part bridal story, part fashion makeover and part family therapy session, each Say Yes to the Dress episode looks at the personalities and craftsmanship that come into play as the Kleinfeld staff goes to extreme lengths to realize each bride's dreams. Over 250 episodes (15 seasons) have aired on TLC in the States. The series has had spin offs in Atlanta, Canada, the UK and Australia to date.
