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: Love/Hate

LOVE/HATE returns for a fifth season.

Nidge (Tom Vaughan Lawlor) is once again king of all he surveys. The debilitating paranoia that grew from his guilt - over Darren, over Linda, everything he's done - has passed as he has narrowly avoided prison following Moynihan's surveillance operation. But he's had to take out a huge loan from an Irish drug dealer based in Spain. And there's a caveat - he's now saddled with Pauley, (Johnny Ward) who has come back from Spain to protect the lender's interests - and keep Nidge out of trouble. And even as Nidge's ambition reaches its zenith, the seeds of disaster are already sown in his past and his enemies are circling for revenge.

With Tommy (Killian Scott) back in a coma, Siobhan (Charlie Murphy) now burns with her desire for retribution. She's working with Detective Inspector Moynihan (Brían F. O'Byrne) who, having suffered a career setback from the failure of his operation, is still determined to bring Nidge down.

The tensions between Nidge and the pretender Fran (Peter Coonan) - increasingly violent, erratic and resentful of Nidge's authority - are starting to spill over into conflict and betrayal.

As his enemies close in Nidge must battle to save his throne and his skin.
