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...

Bridget & Eamon

Jennifer Zamparelli and Bernard O'Shea are back for a third season of the IFTA award winning comedy series.

In series 3, Bridget & Eamon accidentally star in a porn video, they both join a camogie team, start rival radio stations and open a video shop in the house. In other episodes Bridget goes to extreme lengths to get on the bus to Lourdes, Eamon gets into a fight and he runs a Wolf of Wall Street style market research company and Bridget's Mother comes for Sunday lunch with her new young boyfriend. In this years Christmas Special, Bridget fakes Eamon's death but he still turns up at his own wake.

The series regulars all return - Edwin Sammon as Fr Gabriel and Colum McDonnell as Fierce Handy Frank, and Bridget's "friends" and neighbours - Norma Sheahan as Noreen, Shron Mannion as Concepta, Eleanor Tiernan as Dolores and Laura O'Mahony as Grainne.

Written by Jason Butler, Bernard O'Shea and Jennifer Zamparelli. Produced and Directed by Jason Butler.

Frock Finders

A new series which goes behind the scenes of fashion boutiques all over Ireland capturing the difficult task of buying and selling the perfect dress for pivotal moments in our lives. From cutting edge couture to mother of the bride rig-outs, weddings to wakes, performances to beauty pageants, each boutique has a very different take on 'style' and very different customers. Frock Finders captures the story behind each purchase, from the retailers bending over backwards to sell the perfect outfit, through to the special occasion where the dress gets its first outing.

The series combines personal stories, makeover and reality as we follow people from all walks of life searching for that perfect dress against the back drop of what it takes to run a successful boutique in Ireland today.

Some of the boutiques which will be featured in the series include: Frock 'n Fabulous and Waffa in Dublin, Kimono and Jade in Newcastle West, Annbury's Boutique and Pamela Scott in Tralee, Isobel in Adare, Fusion Fashion in Moycullen and Charlotte and Jane in Kinsale
