How to Watch: The Irish Star TV program has been created by the authors to provide an interactive experience in which viewers can share their experiences with their favourite actors, directors and other celebrities.
The programme will be available to watch on the internet from Thursday, March 6.
It features some of the biggest stars in Irish entertainment including Dame Judi Dench, John Cleese, John McTiernan and David Suchet.
“We have chosen to launch the show in a way that allows people to share their stories with the world and we hope that people will take part,” said Peter Fitzgerald, head of content at The Irish Stars.
“Web TV has always been about people sharing their experiences and we have done that for years and we really believe that it is a way of giving back to the people of Ireland.”
The programme is being produced by the Irish Stars and will be broadcast in the UK on the BBC’s iPlayer channel, as well as the BBC iPlayer app for Apple TV and Android.
It will be distributed by the broadcaster’s iStream channel, which is being launched by the BBC on Thursday.
It will be hosted by Dame Judith and will feature some of Ireland’s top talents including Judi, David Suche, Daniel Weber and Michael McTier.
In an interview with The Irish Independent earlier this month, Dame Judich said she was thrilled with the opportunity to be a part of the project.
“It’s great to be part of something like this, I have no idea how it’s going to turn out,” she said.
“The whole thing has been very exciting to me and I am so proud of it.
I’ve never worked with a great group of people before, and I’m very excited.”
She said she had been working with the producers and the producers have been really helpful.
“They’ve been incredibly welcoming, they’ve been really supportive of everything that we’ve been doing,” she added.
“I am really looking forward to what’s coming up and I have been so excited about this project.
It’s such a pleasure to be on the show.”
Weber, who plays the title role on the programme, said that she was very pleased to be given the opportunity.
“For me, I think this is my new home,” she told the Irish Times.
“I’ve never done a web series before and it’s such an honour to be able to work with such great people.
It just shows how passionate people are about the medium and it makes me want to be even more involved.”
The Irish Stars project is the latest in a string of ambitious web TV projects launched by Irish broadcasters over the last few years.
The programme is part of a broader strategy of bringing Irish-made content to audiences around the world.
