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: Damo & Ivor

DAMO & IVOR is a satirical comedy about identical twin brothers who having been separated at birth were reunited after 22 years.

Ivor was raised in affluence on the Southside of the city and Damo grew up on the mean streets of Dublin's Northside.

Series one ended with a bang when Sarah Jane revealed she was pregnant and didn't know which twin was the father. This series Ivor must face up to possibly being a dad and Damo has to also grow up. Jam packed with laugh out loud moments this is another hilarious collision of class and culture.

"Damo & Ivor" Starts Monday 22nd September on RTÉ Two at 22.00

Genre: RTÉ Comedy Music & Talent

Production Company: Parallel Film Productions
