Kidman’s company, Blossom Films, and Ahern’s Greenlight Go Productions are among the firms bringing the series to screens, with both women set to work as executive producers on the show. Glow co-creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch will be the show-runners on ‘Roar’.

Due to be published in Ireland on 1 November and in the US next April, ‘Roar’ is a collection of 30 female-driven short stories with each central character “exploring a different absurd contradiction or issue in her life”.

Blossom Films has enjoyed huge success with its show ‘Big Little Lies’, and Ahern said she was “incredibly honoured to be working with this phenomenal team” behind the ‘Roar’ series.

The women in this collection have lived and breathed with me for so very long, I’m excited to begin the next journey of amplifying their voices.”

It’s been a great week for Irish creatives, for sure.
