Keeley Ryan

It’s official: autumn is finally here.

And as the days and nights are getting colder and colder, the temptation to stay in with a mug of hot chocolate and watch the latest TV series’ is seriously real.

Thankfully, RTÉ have come to the rescue with Bump, one of this year’s four RTÉ /Screen Ireland Comedy Pilots.

The comedy showcase debuts on RTÉ One on Sunday, September 15 at 10.30pm – and is definitely one you won’t want to miss out on.

Bump tells the story of two sisters – layabout younger sister Ciara and the straight laced Liz – who have been at odds since childhood.

But when Liz struggles to conceived, she asks her younger sister to be her surrogate – unfortunately, though, Ciara turns out to be the worst person to ask.

The series stars Gemma-Leah Devereux as Ciara and Charlene McKenna as Liz.

Sean McGinley (Frank), Aoife Duffin (Louise) and Rebecca O’Mara (Colette) also star in the series.

Bump debuts on RTÉ One on September 15. But in the meantime, you can check out the trailer below.
