Ireland is well positioned to take advantage of a golden age in small screen production, according to Siún Ní Raghallaigh, chief executive of Ardmore Studios and Troy Studios.
The success of Netflix and other subscription services has created new demand for high-quality series.
"The subscription model is like a new source of funding in the industry," Ní Raghallaigh told the Sunday Independent in an exclusive interview.
"Because we have more spend than before and that in itself has increased the budget levels.
"It is sort of a golden era for small screen production and we don't see it changing in the immediate future."
A new report by PwC made a range of suggestions for the growth and support of the industry. Among them was the removal of a cap of €70m on the industry tax incentive.
"I would like the cap to be lifted," she said.
"It does not mean the floodgates open because it's only as good as the capacity you have within the country. Right now we have three major studios in the republic, Troy, Ardmore and Ashford.
"At any given time, one would suspect you could have three major projects within the country and you'd be able to service that.
"If you take the cap away, you can compete at a level for projects that match the ambition and scale of the studio space we are building now."
Ardmore in Co Wicklow is seeking planning for further expansion.
