‘CLEAN BREAK’ premieres on RTE September 29, 2015


Four-part drama, Clean Break, launched Sunday night on RTE, setting twitter alight with 140 character praise from viewers left dazzled by the glorious sequence of light and noise emitting their television rectangles during the hour long premiere.

Penned by acclaimed playwright Billy Roche and directed by Gillies MacKinnon and Damien O’Donnell, Clean Break “tells the tale of a tiger kidnapping which rocks a Wexford community driven by love, greed, status and revenge.” Check out the trailer below:

Starring Adam Fergus, Aidan McArdle, Simone Kirby, Damien Molony, Kelly Thornton and Ned Dennehy, the series has been made for RTÉ by Octagon Films and 152 Productions, with Emma Burge, John Chapman, Suzanne McAuley and James Flynn producing.

Edited by Dermot Diskin and Grainne Gavigan, the series underwent Picture and Sound Post here at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound, where Simon Thornton was the Finishing Editor and John O’Riordan provided the Title graphics.

Michelle Fingleton was the Sound Supervisor, Peter Blayney edited the dialogue, and Ken Galvin was the Sound Re-recording Mixer.  Screen Scene VFX supplied the VFX across the four episodes.

Clean Break will air for the next three Sundays at 9.30pm on RTÉ One. The first episode is now available to watch on RTE player.
