Amazon Announces Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Frank of Ireland' Created by and Starring Brian and Domhnall Gleeson

Amazon has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series Frank of Ireland created by and starring brothers Brian and Domhnall Gleeson.

All 6 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, April 16.

The comedy centers on Frank Marron (Brian Gleeson), a 32-year-old catastrophe; a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who's convinced that the world owes him. He's also newly single and still lives at home with his mother, Mary. 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 Aine 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), whose full-time job is clearing the debris left in Frank's wake. Set in an idyllic suburb of Dublin, Ireland, the comedy 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.

In addition to the Gleeson brothers, the comedy stars Pom Boyd, Sarah Greene and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor.

The Gleeson brothers co-created the comedy with Michael Moloney. They executive produce with Sharon Horgan, Clelia Mountford and director MJ Delaney. Amazon Studios, Channel 4 and Merman produce.
