Fade Street Returns for a Second Season
“Fade Street” the popular RTÉ TWO structured reality show, returns to our TV and Internet screens from November 28th for Series 2.
Fade Street finished it’s original run in February of this year and has since become one of the most talked about TV shows on Irish Television.
The new mini-series will be a first for Irish Television, with exclusive episodic content premiering on the Internet via RTÉ Player leading up to the TV Version.
The original audience for Fade Street was young and very online savvy. This audience watches as much TV via the Internet as they do via traditional channels. So it was with this in mind that the concept of the new series was originated. The objective of the new Fade Street series is to give as much credibility to the web as a platform for original content as is normally given to traditional channels.
The mini-series will premiere on TV as 2 x 30” episodes on Thursday 1st December and Thursday 8th December at 10.50pm on RTÉ TWO. Exclusive online webisodes will debut daily at 12 noon via RTÉ Player as 5 x 10” episodes from November 28th ( http://www.rte.ie/player)
The original cast Louise Johnston, Dani Robinson, Cici Cavanagh, Vogue Williams and Paul Furlong all return for the mini series as well as new additions, Roz Purcell and Emily MacKeogh.
The new series catches up on all the cast’s lives since the last series ended and was filmed in and around Dublin and Wexford city.
Fade Street continues to support Irish music by exclusively featuring only Irish music on the soundtrack.
Fade Street has an active Twitter and Facebook community and there will be extensive online content and social media tie-ins with the new series

“Brian and Pippa Get Married” to Air Thursday November 24th in RTÉ TWO at 10pm
Brian and Pippa Get Married, a 1 hour Pop Doc produced by Straywave Media and commission by RTÉ Television will air November 24th on RTÉ TWO.
Brian Ormond and Pippa O’Connor are one of Ireland’s most famous celebrity couples.
Brian is one of Ireland’s best loved TV presenters and Pippa, one of Ireland’s Top Models.
They got married on June 18 2011 and had their reception at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in County Wicklow. Narrated by Brian Dowling ( Big Brother, CDUK, Celebrity Salon) this show follows the couple on the road to the wedding and captures the ups, downs, drama and fun as they prepare for the most important day in their life.
With exclusive access to the couple we get to see all the major events and decision making in the lead up to the big day. We see the couple as they grapple with the all the challenges of planning a wedding from big details like the contentious guest list to small details like picking the cake – we are there for it all. We chart the journey as they go from the early joy and fun of planning to the stress of the final budget and how to pay for it all.
From Mickey Joe Harte, Brian’s Best Man to Brian Dowling, Pippa’s honorary bridesmaid – there are plenty of familiar faces in their circle of friends that help along they way.
The show has everything for the wedding aficionados out there – the rings, the dress, the venue, the hen, stag, the bridesmaids, groomsmen and the big day itself in all it’s glory.
On the surface the show is about a modern Irish society wedding, but ultimately it is about a young couple in love who behind the scenes face the same challenges and struggles as most Irish couples do on the way to their wedding.
THE SHOW AIRS NOVEMBER 24th at 10pm RTÉ TWO.
Produced by Stephen McCormack and John Norton
Directed by Stephen McCormack
