Ok, sell it to me!

Finding Joy explores the many amusing ways we seek happiness and fulfilment in these modern digital times by following 34-year-old Joy, who is just trying to get on with her life after a recent break up from her long-term boyfriend, Aidan.

Amy 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.”

Justin Healy, Executive Producer for comedy in RTÉ, said: ”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.”

Producer Rebecca O’Flanagan said: “We have worked with Amy over a number of years now and have such belief in her talent as both an actor and a writer.  Her voice is fresh, smart and funny and we were very proud to be bringing it to the screen.”
