Frank of Ireland: Season 1

Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders) leads this six-episode Irish comedy as a fully grown man who must now act like one after being kicked out of his parents' house. Co-stars Pom Boyd (Rosie) Sarah Greene (Dublin Murders) and Domhnall Gleeson (About Time).

Frank is a 33-year-old catastrophe; a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who’s convinced that the world owes him. He's also our hero. He has a tenuous hold on reality, a single room in his mother’s home, an ex he can’t get over and a loyal best friend, Doofus. This is the story of a man’s hapless search for respect. We don’t want him to succeed, but it’s fun to watch him try.

Brian Gleeson’s feckless man-child is too selfish to root for.
