RTÉ Entertainment and Music commissions for both RTÉ One and RTÉ2 television.
Programmes on RTÉ One provide shared experiences for the nation on a regular basis from our mainstream in house productions such as The Late Late Show and The Ray D’Arcy Show to contemporary large scale commissions like Dancing With The Stars and Ireland’s Fittest Family. The challenge here is to continue to provide our core audience with engaging, relevant and entertaining content while looking to attract new, younger viewers, particularly in the 25 – 44 year old age groups.
Talk shows, talent shows and one off events are the cornerstones of RTÉ One Entertainment and Music but we also actively look for fresh programming ideas to uncover the next generation of formats and ideas for our audience.
Entertainment and Music on RTÉ2 needs to be about contemporary, brave, relevant and exciting propositions that will appeal to discerning 15 – 44 year olds. Previous commissions from Entertainment and Music on RTÉ2 include Meet The McDonaghs and Vogue Williams’ documentaries.
Please note we will still consider single factual and popular docs for contestable slots on RTÉ One and RTÉ2 on a rolling basis.
We ask, in the first instance, that producers submit ideas into the eCommissioning system: https://e-commissioning.rte.ie/SWIFT.Web/skins/rte/login.aspx under the programme category Entertainment “Contestable RTÉ One” & "Contestable RTÉ2"
