SHE has proven herself as a comedy actress and now Amy Huberman is looking to show how funny a screenwriter she can be.

The Herald can reveal that the mother-of-one, who is married to retired Ireland and Leinster rugby player Brian O'Driscoll, is handing in the first draft of her TV series script to bosses at RTE before the end of the month.

Threesome star Amy has been developing a comedy programme for the national broadcaster and will be submitting her efforts in the coming days, according to a well-placed source.

The IFTA winner beat off hundreds of rivals to land funding for her project, which should be on air by January.

Petite blonde Amy is producing the programme, but will also star in the show.

The 33-year-old has been holidaying abroad lately with her other half Brian and their one-year-old daughter Sadie, and she brought her work along with her.

Since breaking into the industry, Amy has expanded her horizons by branching out into other areas.

In addition to her success in front of the cameras, she's also proven she is a savvy businesswoman.

In recent years she has become a published author and established herself as a bona fide shoe designer.

To date she has released three footwear ranges for Bourbon and another is set to hit shelves soon.

She's not the only one enjoying plenty of opportunities work-wise.

British and Irish Lion Brian (34) is about to step out as a rugby pundit for BT Sport and will also be taking to the airwaves as a contributor on Newstalk Radio's Off The Ball team.

He officially hung up his international and club jerseys in May, saying goodbye to a career spanning 15 years on the field.

Relieved of training and match commitments, Brian has not ruled out a possible move to the US with Amy, should she wish to pursue acting over there full time.

The couple, who have been married for four years, welcomed their first-born little Sadie in February 2013, the morning of Ireland's anticipated Six Nations clash against old rivals England.

Amy gave birth within hours of walking the red carpet at the IFTA awards.
