"I’m thrilled and excited to be starting on this adventure, Finding Joy," Huberman said.

Justin Healy, executive producer for comedy in RTÉ, said Huberman's writing "will go down very well" with audiences.

"Amy is naturally a very funny person, and in Finding Joy she brings that comedy gene to the fore," he said.

"Her writing is sharp, witty and smart, and in this six-part series she has created engaging, relatable characters that will go down very well with the audience."

"Once again it is our key objective to support and develop Irish talent, on and off screen."
