Production has started on Finding Joy, a new RTÉ comedy created, written by and starring Amy Huberman.

The six-part series began shooting in Dublin this week, and follows a single woman named Joy as she navigates a painful breakup and looks for happiness in all of the wrong places.

Finding Joy also stars Aisling Bea, Laura Whitmore, Lochlann O’Mearain, Jennifer Rainsford, Catherine Walker, Paul Reid, Hannah Scott and Mark Doherty.

Speaking about the production, Huberman said: "I’m thrilled and excited to be starting on this adventure, Finding Joy. I’ve thoroughly loved the writing process and now can’t wait to start filming and see the world and all the characters come to life."

Finding Joy is being produced by Treasure Entertainment, with RTÉ co-producing alongside Acorn TV.

"I’m delighted to continue my collaboration with Treasure Entertainment with whom I’ve had a long standing working relationship and am thrilled that both Acorn and RTÉ are partnering with us on this venture," Huberman added.

Justin Healy, Executive Producer for comedy in RTÉ, hailed Huberman's "natural humour and sharp writing".

"Amy is naturally a very funny person, and in Finding Joy she brings that comedy gene to the fore. Her writing is sharp, witty and smart, and in this six-part series she has created engaging, relatable characters that will go down very well with the audience," he said.

"Once again it is our key objective to support and develop Irish talent, on and off screen."
