New 1916 TV3 drama set to star Nidge and Trish from Love/Hate

We'll definitely be tuning into this.

Rebellion has got a lot of people talking since airing on RTÉ, and now TV3 are set to run to their own show based around the time of the Easter Rising, with a couple of great actors already signed up.

Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Aoibhinn McGinnity, who of course starred as Nidge and Trish in Love/Hate, will appear in Trial Of The Century - a hypothetical study which imagines the leaders of the Easter Rising not being executed, but rather summoned to court.

It's set to air in late spring/early summer, with filming taking place around the Smithfield area.

Vaughan-Lawlor will portray Padraig Pearse, with McGinnity playing the parent of a child lost to the battle.

We'll certainly be having a look anyway.
