The South Westerlies

Deadpan Pictures


When a small coastal town in the south-west of Ireland is earmarked for a Norwegian-owned wind farm, it’s not just the spectacular scenery that’s under pressure. For a single working mother, tasked with going undercover to bring the project home, her eco-battle is compounded by the return of a crinkly-eyed surfer with an unmistakable resemblance to her teenage son.

This comic drama filming on location in Ireland features a rich cast including Orla Brady (American Horror Story, Mistresses,) Eileen Walsh (Catastrophe, Women on the Verge) and Patrick Bergin (Red Rock, Patriot Games).

Series One: 6 x 1 hour
