Amy Huberman has been cast opposite former Clinic co-star Rory Keenan in Cheaters, a new RTÉ legal drama which will begin filming in Dublin in the coming weeks.

The four-part series tells the story of a solicitor, played by Huberman, who sets up her own practice after her fiancé and colleague, played by Keenan, cheats on her.

The omens do look good as the station has got some serious talent on board. 

The series is created by James Phelan, who was behind TG4's 'quantum-leap' take on 1916, Wrecking the Rising. He's also one of the writers alongside Rob Heyland and Mike O'Leary, who wrote the station's other break-out hit, the teen drama EIPIC after cutting his teeth on Channel 4's Misfits.

The director's chair will be filled by Lisa James Larsson who worked on a sitcom for the NBC network in the States, while Dublin company Blinder Films, which has enjoyed box office success with The Queen of Ireland and Love & Friendship, will produce the series.

"Cheaters is a series that reflects a modern world and stories of family and emotional relationships - the flux, the chaos and the ridiculous - and how such stories end up in the legal system," said RTÉ's Head of Television Drama, Jane Gogan. "This is a good time to explore this subject but, then, when isn't?"

Huberman is certainly in demand these days. She's also one of the stars of a new comedy-drama Can't Cope, Won't Cope, about the lives and loves of two twentysomething friends. The six-part series is due to be shown on RTÉ2 in the Autumn. 

She's also reunited with The Stag and Your Bad Self writer-director John Butler for his new film Handsome Devil, which tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a loner and star athlete at a boarding school.

Huberman has also written the screenplay for Bolt, the planned film based on her 2012 bestseller I Wished for You. It tells the story of Grace, a 29-year-old who reaches a crossroads in her life when her boyfriend proposes. Seriously, when does the woman sleep?
