Mrs Brown's Boys
In this new six-part series on RTÉ One, comedian Brendan O'Carroll stars as Agnes Brown, a hilarious, foul-mouthed Dublin matriarch who interferes in the lives of her children and friends. The theatre show, Mrs Brown's Boys, has been a sell-out success for a number of years in Ireland and the UK.
Brendan O'Carroll writes the scripts and stars. The cast of the television show features the regular cast of Mrs Brown's Boys on stage, and includes his real-life wife Jennifer Gibney as Cathy, his daughter Fiona O'Carroll as Maria, his son Danny O'Carroll as Buster, and his sister Eilish O'Carroll as Winnie McGoogan.
In the first episode, Mrs Brown has family troubles to contend with: Granddad is feeling poorly and son Dermot has fallen out with Maria, his girlfriend. Dr Flynn goes to see Granddad and Mrs Brown decides to talk to Maria - but matters only seem to get worse.
Mrs. Brown's daughter Cathy is a psychology student and offers Dermot and Maria a counselling session. A concerned Mrs. Brown comes along.
Meanwhile, Granddad ends up in hospital when a temperature reading goes dramatically wrong.
