REBELLION is a five-part drama that tells the story of the violent birth of modern Ireland, exploring the emergence of a new state during one of the most disruptive and terrifying periods in history.
The drama begins with the outbreak of World War One. As expectations of a short and glorious campaign are dashed, extremism comes to the fore as social stability – the very fabric of life – erodes. How do people react? Some prioritise family loyalties. Others take sides. Motivated by the noblest of ideals or opportunism, some take up arms, prepared to sacrifice everything for the dream of a better society. What is it like to be caught up in such chaotic and violent times? We see the tumultuous events through the eyes of men, women and children from Dublin, Galway, Belfast and London. There are winners and losers, loves and losses.
Each episode goes for 60 minutes each and is valued at $29.99 each. The series stars Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones) Niamh Cusack (Heartbeat), Brian Gleeson (Love/Hate), Charlie Murphy (Happy Valley), Sara Greene (Vikings), Ruth Bradley (Humans), Gus McDonagh (Love/Hate) and Michelle Fairley (Suits, Fortitude).
