Amy Huberman has plenty of reason to smile as she has landed a role on RTE’s upcoming comedy show, Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope.

The six-part series will also star Norma Sheahan and is written by Stefanie Preissner – who previously penned hit one-woman show and radio play Solpadeine is My Boyfriend.

The drama will hit our TV screen this autumn, but filming will begin within the coming days.

“I think it’ll be my first time working with RTE since Yer Bad Self and The Clinic,” Amy said. “So I start work on that next week and it should be exciting.”

The series follows two Cork twentysomethings, Aisling and Danielle, whose fast lifestyles start to spiral out of control.

Rising stars Seana Kerslake and Nika McGuigan star as Aisling and Danielle.

Acclaimed actress Eileen Walsh will also star in the drama, which is directed by Cathy Brady.

RTE head of Comedy, Talent Development and Music Eddie Doyle said: “The show aims to capture what life is really like for young women as they navigate their way through all the drinking, dating and drama of their 20s.”

This is the first comedy series for Amy since Comedy Central’s Threesome. She also starred in RTE comedy sketch series Yer Bad Self alongside Domhnall Gleeson.

She will next appear in John Butler’s rugby comedy Handsome Devil – her husband Brian O’Driscoll also had a role in the film.  Although he will not appear on camera, British and Irish Lion BOD was enlisted to choreograph sporting set-pieces.
