Since it's inception in 1999, ShinAwiL has been synonymous with compelling television, producing some of Ireland's best loved shows. Having opened a drama division in 2017, we've upheld that promise, consistently producing high quality TV series and feature films like The Miracle Club, Clean Sweep, and more with international partners for a global audience.
In 2017, the company began developing a slate of scripted projects alongside our non-scripted ventures, forming fruitful partnerships with a variety of international co-producers. With projects backed by Screen Ireland, RTÉ, and various international distributors and studios, and several exciting projects in development, we continue to produce and develop a diverse slate of prestige scripted content.
Some of our credits to date include: MISS SCARLET & THE DUKE for A&E International/Element 8, which premiered on PBS Masterpiece in 2021, upcoming feature film THE MIRACLE CLUB with Zephyr Films and starring Dame Maggie Smith, Laura Linney, & Kathy Bates, and 6-part Irish thriller CLEAN SWEEP with Incendo (Canada). Starring Charlene McKenna and Barry Ward, CLEAN SWEEP follows Shelly Mohan, who seems like an unassuming mother, but when a dark secret emerges from her past, she makes a fatal choice to prevent the truth from surfacing, and must hide in plain sight from her detective husband as the police begin closing in.
