Republic of Telly is facing the axe by RTÉ due to cost cuts.
The cuts follow the news that the broadcaster is expected to bridge a loss of €20m by the end of this year.
It has also been said that documentary series Reality Bites will be cut.
“It’s easier to axe a show like Republic of Telly because many of the people working on it are freelance writers and actors,” a source told the Irish Sun.
“Shows made largely by freelancers are much easier to cut than those made by staff. Freelancers don’t need to be paid redundancy either.”
Although new RTÉ Director General Dee Forbes submitted plans to stem the station’s losses, more cuts are expected to be made.
