RTÉ'S new comedy series is about two Cork women trying to navigate their way through their twenties.

The drama stars Seána Kerslake and Nika McGuigan, the daughter of boxing star Barry McGuigan.

Huberman plays Kate - a high-powered business woman.

"Your twenties are a formative time....My twenties were a good while ago," she laughed.

"I keep saying I was the granny on this. I was like, 'All those young ones, having fun'," she said.

The series has been written by acclaimed playwright Stefanie Preissner, who decided to pen the drama as she was unable to relate to the glossy plotlines of American TV shows.

Huberman said she was drawn to the script as she felt it was unique.

"I thought it was fresh and different and funny," she said.

Huberman is currently filming WWII drama 'Zoo'.

Set in Belfast during the war, the feature film tells the story of a group of children who try to save an elephant during the air raids. "It's a special film. I actually don't get to work with the elephant," she added.

'Can't Cope, Won't Cope' airs tonight at 10pm on RTÉ2.
