RTE Two to launch new Irish reality series

RTE Two looks set to launch a new reality TV show as part of their upcoming autumn schedule.
Last year the youth station lost a fifth of its audience and the new show would aim to appeal to the target 15-34 audience.
The show is thought to be an updated version of previous reality hit Fade Street, which made stars of Vogue Williams (now married to Bryan McFadden), Cici Kavanagh, and Louise Johnston.
Channel controller Bill Malone was appointed in September to help build a new identity for RTE Two in advance of rival UTV’s arrival in the new year.
Since his arrival there has been a renewed focus on home-grown programming.
RTE said they "won’t reveal further details about the new series until the RTE Two New Season launch next month".
