Colin Bateman penned TV drama series set in a local newspaper office returns for a second series.
Scúp, Colin Bateman’s drama series set in a struggling Irish language newspaper office, returns to TG4 for a second series.
It airs on TG4 from 1st April at 9.55pm. In the new series we rejoin the newspaper team as they welcome two new members of staff – Gerry (Conor MacNeill) and Patrick (Shane Fallon).
The struggling staff at ‘An Nuacht’ return for a second series with ‘temporary’ editor Rob Cullan back at his desk, and his wife and children in tow.
His life is complicated by his professional and personal relationship with ambitious reporter Alix, who has found herself a new love interest.
The tables are turned when Diarmuid finds his family in the headlines and old flames are rekindled for better or worse. Cormac’s nephew Gerry joins as the new cub reporter, along with new photographer Patrick from Dublin, who is a bit wet behind the ears.
‘Uncle Cormac’s’ loyalty to the paper is challenged as stories from the outside impact on individuals within the newsroom.
