Following the success of the ‘The Guards', ‘The Pikemen' and ‘The Magdalen Martyrs', TV3 will air two brand new Jack Taylor movies, ‘The Dramatist' and ‘Priest'.
The movie series, which is based on the novels of Galway writer Ken Bruen, follow an Irish ex-cop, Jack Taylor, who takes on cases that The Guards won´t touch - no matter how hopeless.
The first of the new movies, 'Jack Taylor: The Dramatist', catches up with Jack who against all odds is clean and sober. But in his hometown of Galway, grief is never far away. His mother, who has suffered a stroke, is living in a health care facility and a female student, Sarah, falls from the roof of the university and dies - dressed in a theatre-costume, a ring of paper wrapped around her hand, a message typed within. When drugs are found in Sarah's blood, the Police assume suicide under the influence of Heroin.
The movies were filmed on location in Galway and see Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Nora Jane Noone (The Runaway, Deception) and Killian Scott (Love/Hate, Single Handed) return to reprise their roles. There are also three new additions to the cast as Aaron Monaghan (The Other Side Of Sleep, Single-Handed), Emma Eliza Regan (Love Eternal, The Shadows) and Gavin Drea (Love Hate series 2, What Richard Did) join the ‘Jack Taylor' crew.
'Jack Taylor: The Dramatist' airs Sunday 3rd March at 10pm on TV3
