An award-winning graduate of film and TV student from the Curragh Rich Boland has got through to round two of the RTE Storyland competition.

Storyland is a competition for the best online drama series as voted for by the viewers and has been described as a means ‘to identify and develop the up and coming talent for the future’.

The show “Talk it Out” is about Martin an unlucky psychotherapist, crumbling under the weight of his own problems as a rival hypnotherapist Dr. Garry is undercutting him and stealing his patients. When he starts taking advice from his own patients, things quickly spiral out of control.

“So our show ‘Talk It Out’ got through the first round of the RTÉ Storyland Competition,” said Rich. “It’s now round two, so please go to www,talkitoutshow.com and vote once more for Talk It Out. It will only take a few clicks to vote but will help us stay in the competition against our competitors who seem to have a wider reach than us. So please vote for Talk It Out, share it on your Face Book walls and spread the word to anyone who will listen.”

Other other main cast members include Bernard O’Shea of Republic of Telly and Aoibhinn McGinnity, also from Love/Hate. “I was one of the producers on the show and we are delighted with how the first episode went, we hope that we will be back to do the second episode and maybe go all the way and win it,” he added. “Seeing previous winners such as The Hardy Bucks go onto to now be a series on TV is very encouraging.”
