Netflix has released its first teaser for its series Flaked, a “dry human comedy” co-starring Irish actor Ruth Kearney, which will arrive on the streaming service on March 11th.

Kearney , who previously appeared in The Following and Primeval, will play a love-interest character called London alongside co-creator and main draw Will Arnett in the California-set story of “reinvention, friendship and bullshit”. Dubliner Kearney joins Kerry Condon (ex-Rome) in the ranks of Irish acting talent to win roles thanks to Netflix’s massive investment in original content, with the latter appearing in Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.

Later this year, Jamie Dornan will be seen in the film Jadotville, a Netflix-acquired war drama about the 1961 Siege of Jadotville, with Dornan featuring as the commander of an Irish United Nations battalion under attack by 3,000 Congolese troops.
