Produced by Vico Films, Peter Foott is the writer, director, and executive producer on the show and Martina Niland (Once, Sing Street) produced.

The Christmas special can be seen in December and follows on from hugely successful TV series and smash hit feature film of the same name.

It follows loveable rogues Conor and Jock as they navigate their awkward teenage years, coming up with schemes to distract them from their troubled home lives and inability to stay out of trouble in school.
