The Liberties

Greenhorne films have released a proof of concept for new Dublin-based drama The Liberties.

A proof of concept is like a mini pilot episode of a show that a production company wants to release.

The Liberties is set in Dublin in 1815 and is described as a cross between Peaky Blinders and The Gangs of New York.

Dubliners are dealing with the failed Wolfe Tone uprising of 1798 and subsequent Act of Union.

Tensions have risen considerably between the Irish and their British counterparts.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Emancipation movement is gathering momentum and a young Daniel O’Connell is making his presence felt.

The story begins with three siblings: William, Mary, and Pondersbury Kelly.

According to Scannain, season one follows the life of legendary boxer Dan Donelly who is connected to the Kelly family.

The official synopsis reads:

His unlikely partnership with William leads to success that, again and again, neither man can hold onto for very long.

We are also introduced to Peg Plunkett, the most infamous madam of the era.

In a male-dominated society, William’s sister, Mary, becomes gradually affiliated with Peg’s business in an effort to wrestle back some autonomy and power for herself.

Fingers crossed The Liberties makes it to our TV screens soon!
