    Irish-American family’s return to Ireland focus of RTE kids’ show

    By Noreen Bowden | July 15, 2008

    RTE has commissioned a new interactive children’s series that will focus on the life of an Irish-American teenager who moves to Ireland with her family. “Aisling’s Diary” will be aired on weekdays on RTE 2, and will also be available online.
    According to a report on the IFTN website, Aisling is an Irish-dancing obsessed teen who must adjust to her new school and culture. She begins a romance with “the hip hop bad boy next door”.
    The show is being created by the creater of Sofia’s Diary, a popular online programme, which was the first internet-based show to make the transition to UK television; it is being proudced by Campbell Ryan Productions.  Aisling’s Diary will be accompanied by a Bebo page.
    “We are really excited about this series as it examines what it means to be Irish in contemporary Ireland,” ‘Aisling’s Diary’ producer Tríona Campbell told IFTN. “The series will feature modern dance, hip hop and Irish dance, and we will also be launching a search online for new Irish bands to play on the soundtrack to the series”.
