Charlie set to air on RTE this fall September 3, 2014


‘Charlie’, RTÉ’s upcoming TV trilogy charting the rise and fall of former Taoiseach Charles Haughey, recently completed post production here at Screen Scene.

Starring Aidan Gillen in the lead role alongside fellow ‘Love/Hate’ actors Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Laurence Kinlan, the series is set to chart the emergence of modern Ireland through the mesmeric figure of Charles J Haughey and his pursuit of power, wealth and glamour.

Written by Dublin playwright Colin Teevan and Directed by Kenny Glenaan and Charlie McCarthy, the three 90 minute installments have undergone full Picture and Sound post Production here at Screen Scene, where Nathan Nugent and Isobel Stephenson edited, Simon Thornton onlined, Gary Curran graded, Michelle Fingleton Supervised Sound and Garret Farrell provided the mix.
