Three socially incompatible couples compete to show each other the ultimate night out in Limerick, Galway and Dublin to win their dream 'Big Night Out' abroad .

The couples competing with one another for Dublin Couple Martin & Fiona, Galway Couple Tom & Courtney and Limerick couple Tammy and Danny.

IT expert Martin and office administrator Fiona are immaculately coiffed, Algarve-tanned gym addicts who love fine dining, good wines, and the kind of discreet late-night piano bars where well-heeled Dublin socialites like to party with impunity into the wee small hours.

Professional musician Tom & his fiancé Courtney, who's a medical secretary, love the Galway Indie music scene. They like to eat healthily and are fans of the 'foraged food' movement. Tom and Courtney also love Galway's small but burgeoning burlesque scene.

Unemployed Karaoke addict Danny and his partner Tammy, a full time mum, are unapologetic party monsters. They like drinking, raucous sing-a-longa Rhianna sessions and their idea of a slap-up meal is an all-you-can eat buffet; although they can stretch to a nice buzzy western-themed steakhouse if they're out to impress.

And all three couples are out to impress as gourmands Martin and Fiona introduce buffet bandits Danny and Tammy to Dublin's 5 Star Restuarant scene, Boho duo Tom and Courtney introduce their guests to the tassle teated joys of amateur Burlesque and Danny and Tammy fly the flag for alcopops, dog racing and extreme karaoke - Limerick stylee...

It all adds up to a reality TV comedy of manners as the couples terrorise each other with their hilariously mismatched social agendas. As nights out progress, strained politeness turns to incredulity, incredulity to annoyance, annoyance ratchets up into anger and anger to all out war!!

Vasha Wallace, SVP Global Acquisitions and Development, FremantleMedia, said: "We're really pleased to be working with Ireland's top public broadcaster RTÉ on the Format Farm initiative, which will bring top Irish formats to the world. We see huge potential with Six In The City, it's a fun, fresh idea that we think audiences worldwide will really respond to."
