Do you have a Cork accent? Casting underway for new 'Young Offenders’ TV show
The Young Offenders

The producers of the smash hit comedy The Young Offenders have issued a casting call seeking actors to appear in the new television series of the movie.

Production begins this summer on the BBC backed show that will follow the travails of Jock and Conor in their home city.

Vico Films said they are looking for people from Cork or people who can do a Cork accent to apply for roles in the six-episode series.

Young Offenders was the most popular Irish-made film of last year and was the fastest film to break the €1m box office mark.

For the television series, actors Alex Murphy and Chris Walley will reprise their roles of Conor and Jock.

Director Peter Foot is also back on board along with Hilary Rose who played Conor's mother Mairead.

BBC Three and BBC Comedy, in association with RTÉ, have commissioned the six-part series from producers Vico Films and production will begin in Cork this summer.

The Young Offenders film followed two Cork inner-city teenagers, Conor and Jock, as they embark on a 160km road trip on stolen bikes, in the hopes of finding an unrecovered bale of cocaine.
