Eat The Rich from Storyland 2019
RTÉ and Northern Ireland Screen have launched six brand new web-dramas as part of this year’s season of Storyland.

Currently, in its ninth season, Storyland 2019 brings original Irish stories to a national and global audience. Previous Storyland commissions have gone on to be commissioned for RTÉ comedy and drama series, developed as a feature film and have won numerous international awards, as well as generating additional opportunities within and outside RTÉ for the participating writers, directors, producers and actors.

This year's Storyland contenders offer a vivid showcase for the formidable breadth of Ireland's creative talent across writing, acting, producing and directing - find out more below.
