Many mourn the end of summer days and good weather but for TV lovers it’s all about Fall heralding in a new season of great TV.
Fall 2015 is no different and RTÉ Player International have a great lineup of shows to keep us entertained as the days grow shorter and the evenings get darker.
You can watch presenter Ray D’Arcy’s grand return to television with a new prime-time chat show available to watch live or on-demand from September 26. The Ray D’Arcy show promises to give you a good excuse to stay in on a Saturday night with a lively mix of chat, music and comedy as Ray is joined by Irish and international guests.
Classic Irish comedy returns with a new series from “The Hardy Bucks” and everybody's favorite Limerick lads, The Rubberbandits, guiding us through all we need to know about Irish history in “The Rubberbandits’ Guide to 1916”.
The best of Irish drama is also available with series three of “Raw” just added along with old favorites “Fair City” and “Love/Hate”. Set in a busy Dublin restaurant, this series of “Raw” sees owner Fiona employ Ray Cronin, formerly one of Dublin’s most successful restaurateurs with a notorious reputation, to be her new front of house manager and it isn’t long before sparks fly between the pair.
Bringing us a dose of reality, “Maia Dunphy’s Truth About …” explores her journey through pregnancy while talking to Irish women who have given birth in every possible place and way and we follow RTÉ 2FM DJ and columnist, Louise McSharry, in her battle against cancer while preparing for her upcoming wedding in “F**k Cancer”.
Aged just 31 years old at the time of her diagnosis, McSharry brings her unique dark humor and wry attitude to dealing with a serious illness. You can expect tears, laughter and some irreverent language!
Anybody with an interest in country music will also enjoy “Stetsons and Stilettos,” an in-depth look at the Irish country music scene from the perspective of performers such as Nathan Carter and the fans who love it.
You can check out all of these and more in the season trailer below.
