Actors and real-life brothers Brian and Domhnall Gleeson have co-created a brand new Irish comedy series, in which they star as best friends.


In Frank Of Ireland, Brian Gleeson plays Frank, described as "a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development" - aka. a man-child of the first degree.

Meanwhile his best friend, Doofus (Domhnall Gleeson), is a romantic and pushover who cleans up the mess left in Frank's wake.

Executive produced by Catastrophe star Sharon Horgan, the series is written by Brian and Domhnall Gleeson and Michael Moloney (Your Bad Self).

The series follows the exploits of struggling musician Frank, a 32-year-old still living at home with his mother, Mary (the local heartbreaker and accidental home wrecker).

Frank sees himself as a tortured artist, but the only gigs he's getting are (unpaid) performances at funerals.

"Set in an idyllic suburb of Dublin, Frank of Ireland is the hilarious story of a man’s hapless search for respect, as he struggles to grow up and get his life together, and hopefully not burn everything to the ground in the process," according to the official synopsis.

Frank Of Ireland cast

Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders, The Bisexual), stars as Frank Marron, while his brother Domhnall Gleeson (About Time, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) plays Doofus.

Other stars include Sarah Greene (Dublin Murders) as Frank's ex-girlfriend Áine, and Pom Boyd (Rosie) as Mary.
