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...

First Dates Ireland

First Dates Ireland l-r - Ethan Miles, Alice Marr, Mateo Saina and Pete Ungless 3

Passion is in the air, the First Dates restaurant of romance is fully booked, the Moon of Love is shining bright with the staff, who play Cupid, on hand with wise words and Dutch courage for a new batch of hopeful singletons.

In a season packed with unexpected revelations, drama and diversity, we'll meet Marilyn Monroe fans and Mormons, surfer dudes and a male stripper. We'll witness a reality TV show playboy attempt to show a new side of himself, and see a familiar face from series one enjoying a date with a former Irish TV star. There'll be teen heart-throbs, flirty thirty-somethings and seductive seniors, everyone from student freshers to fresh-faced septuagenarians.

Our dapper Croatian Maitre D' Mateo Saina will also welcome the restaurant's first transgender dater, first deaf dater and a brand new staff member in the form of charming waiter, Pete Ungless, and returning staff Alice Marr and Ethan Miles.

Sit back, take a deep breath and prepare to have your heart stolen!
