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...

Title: Bridget and Eamon

Bridget & Eamon are still stuck in the mid-midlands with their 6 to 8 kids with only cigarettes, alcohol and choppy changey hair to get them through it.

Oversix brand new episodes and a Christmas special, they'll open a hair salon in the house, go to up Dublin to a fancy restaurant for the first time ever, lose their minds when they miss a phone call, run for election, solve a murder case, play a dangerous game of sunburn roulette, get a visit from the Mafia and maybe accidentally kill Eamon's Mammy.

Jennifer Zamparelli and Bernard O'Shea again headline the show as the titular twosome and the other regulars from series one are all back with Norma Sheahan, Sharon Mannion and Eleanor Tiernan as neighbours Noreen, Concepta and Dolores. Edwin Sammon is back as Fr. Gabriel, Colum McDonnell as Fierce Handy Frank and with Neil Molloy and Danny Kehoe as hopeless Gardaí Paul and Ger.

Guest stars include Mark Huberman and Aoibhinn McGinnity as visiting Americans Mikey & Barbara, Anne Gildea as Sister Donna Cora Loaney, Joe Rooney as local DJ Phil Erup, Kevin McGahern as hotel owner Dessie and series 1 favourites John Colleary and Pat McDonnell as IRA men Jimmy and Martin.

Title: You Should Really See A Doctor

After a successful first series, the RTÉ Television medical diagnosis show, You Should Really See a Doctor is back.

From Donegal to Cork, from Kerry to Dublin, Dr. Pixie McKenna and Dr. Phil Kieran have been on tour around the country this summer, visiting events with their pop-up clinic to offer on the spot free consultations and health checks.

Once again they have been examining the symptoms and ailments that are bothering the country's adults and children - the lumps, bumps, pains, aches, sleep issues, skin problems, tingling and toilet troubles - whatever has been irritating the nation. From hayfever to suspected menopause to children's tonsillitis the doctors prod and probe to help find solutions.

Pixie and Phil also meet those who have been self-diagnosing - those who believe that they may be living with Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or even cancer. We've all been there, turning a headache into a suspected tropical disease with a few clicks on the computer! Now it's time to consult the real doctors.

Transmission: Wednesdays @ 20.30 on RTÉ One
