Frank of Ireland

Coming to Prime Video On April 16, 2021* *US, CAN, AU ONLY
  • About

    Frank of Ireland is a physical and ridiculous brand of humor with an original twist. Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders, The Bisexual), stars as Frank Marron, a 32-year-old catastrophe; a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who’s convinced that the world owes him. He's also our hero. Frank is newly single and still lives at home with his mother, Mary (Pom Boyd, Rosie). He’s a self-proclaimed musician with a tenuous hold on reality, and hasn’t written a song or played a gig in years. His ex-girlfriend Áine (Sarah Greene, Dublin Murders) has just found a new boyfriend, and Frank may be finding that a tad difficult. Luckily, Frank has a loyal best friend, Doofus, (Domhnall Gleeson, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) whose full-time job is clearing the debris left in Frank’s wake. 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.

    Frank of Ireland is executive produced by Clelia Mountford and Sharon Horgan for Merman, Brian Gleeson, Domhnall Gleeson, and Michael Moloney.  The series is a co-production between Channel 4 and Amazon Studios, and is produced by Rory Gilmartin and directed by MJ Delaney for Merman.
