Ar Teilifis: Watch a sneak peak at RTÉ’s new 1916 drama Rebellion

RTÉ has released a sneak-peek at their new drama series set during the events of the 1916 Rising, Rebellion.

Rebellion, which starts in 1914, charts the beginning of a campaign for independence that leads to the 1916 Easter Rising and the Proclamation of the Republic, a seminal moment in Irish history that has its centenary celebrations next year.


The series features a host of Irish stars, including Charlie Murphy, Brian Gleeson, Ruth Bradley, Michelle Fairley, Ian McElhinney, Barry Ward, and Sarah Greene.

RTÉ produces the drama, with Robert Redford’s SundanceTV as co-production partners. SundanceTV will screen the five-part series in the US and beyond.

Rebellion will be broadcast on RTÉ One in 2016.
