Finding Joy, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

Here's a new six-part comedy series, written by and starring Amy Huberman as the eponymous Joy, a woman who finds herself thrust into the limelight as she tries to get over a break-up.

Joy may have just broken up with her long-term boyfriend, Aidan, and her best friend Trish is busy having a baby, but she’s perfectly happy with her secluded and orderly life.

Her career is also trundling along nicely, until she receives an unwanted new job, filling in for Ireland’s most-beloved vlogger, Flora the Happy Hunter.

This job catapults Joy into the unknown, and unwelcome, world of social media stardom, where she must share her fears, feelings, and wardrobe malfunctions with the world. What joy, eh?

The cast also includes Aisling Bea, Laura Whitmore and Jennifer Rainsford.
