Red Rock - Red Rock (TV series) - Netflix
Red Rock is an Irish television soap opera set in the fictional seaside town of Red Rock near Dublin. The series was first broadcast on TV3 on 7 January 2015, and is produced by Element Pictures and Company Pictures. The show is based around the town's local Garda Station, as well as the ongoing battles between two feuding families, the Kielys and the Hennessys, whose differences often involve them getting into trouble with the Gardaí. The series is filmed on location or in studios based at the old John Player Factory in Dublin. This includes an all inclusive Gardaí station, the Neptune Café and several home sets in the main warehouse. As Red Rock is set in a seaside town, Howth and Dún Laoghaire are often used for on-location shooting. The series is part of the main prime time schedule for TV3, and was first broadcast on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8:30pm. Initially, the channel revealed that it had commissioned 40 weeks worth of episodes, to air right through until December of that year, with a mid-series break. From September 2016, the series received a major overhaul, with the theme tune being replaced and episodes extended to double length, with only one episode broadcast per week. The series was also moved to 9:00pm on Mondays to allow for story lines and scenes to be grittier, as the series would be post-watershed. A special double episode, commemorating two years on air, was broadcast on 9 January 2017. According to initial showrunner Peter McKenna, 160 episodes have been commissioned, with 60 scripted before the series was brought to air. With each series containing 40 episodes, the series is expected to run for four years before coming up for recommission. In Ireland, the first episode pulled in an average viewership of 323,000. Despite a brief slump in ratings, it has grown to become TV3's most popular show, with repeats of the first series airing during the summer hiatus due to viewer demand. In January 2017, it was suggested the series could be axed due to falling viewing figures, but a TV3 representative stated that figures have been “increasing at a steady pace”, and confirmed that a “fifth series was currently in the works”, bringing the total number of episodes to 200. Internationally, the series is broadcast on BBC One in the UK (during Doctors summer break), and in North America and in New Zealand, the series is available for download via Amazon Prime. The first episode to be broadcast on the BBC drew viewing figures upwards of 1.1 million, and received positive reviews from viewers and critics alike. In August 2017, the series was placed on hiatus by TV3 due to the lease on the current set expiring, and the production having to be moved to a newly-built set. This subsequently resulted in the second half of the third series, which was due to air from September 2017, being delayed until 2018. TV3 director of programming Bill Malone also stated that the viewing figures for these episodes would ultimately decide on the series' long-term future. At the time of writing, twenty-three unaired episodes had been filmed, while two further episodes designed to wrap up all of the series' ongoing storylines, were filmed in the Autumn of 2017. Thirteen of these twenty-five episodes have since aired on TV3, broadcasting from January 22, 2018. The final twelve episodes have yet to receive an airdate.
