ACORN TV’s Riveting Irish Western Returns


(aka An Klondike)

Exclusive U.S. Premiere on April 24

Marking the return of the first Western to be made in Ireland, the ambitious, character driven drama "DOMINION CREEK" Series 2 makes its exclusive U.S. Premiere on Acorn TV on April 24. 

Known as An Klondike in Ireland and winner of four Irish Film and TV Awards for Series 1, including Best Drama, Lead Actor and Script, Series 2 has been nominated for a record 10 IFTA awards, including Best Drama, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Cinematography. 

The gripping 4-part miniseries stars Owen McDonnell (Single Handed), Seán T.Ó Meallaigh (Vikings, Charlie), and IFTA’s Best Lead Actor winner Dara Devaney (Above Suspicion, Camelot) as the Connolly brothers; three Irish emigrants seeking riches in the American Gold Rush. 

In Series, as the Connolly Brothers continue to grow their influence in Dominion Creek, two new arrivals into town are set to change everything. The miniseries co-stars Siobhán O’Kelly (Jack Taylor, George Gently), Steve Wall (Vikings, Silent Witness) and IFTA nominee Ned Dennehy (Peaky Blinders, Versailles). 

The storylines and characters draw from historical accounts and are inspired by real life tales of people who experienced the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890’s. 

Available at Acorn.TV and on a variety of devices, Acorn TV is the premier streaming service for world class television from Britain and beyond from RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE).

In the second season of this award-winning Irish drama, the Connolly brothers are struggling to forge an empire for themselves during the gold rush of the 1890s. 

They stand united, having established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the territory, but against a backdrop of growing lawlessness in Dominion Creek, they must face a challenge that threatens to take from them all that they hold dear – family, friends and gold.

2017 IFTA nominees are writer Marcus Fleming, director Dathai Keane and director of photography Cathal Watters.

U.S. Premiere: April 24 (and anytime thereafter) Configuration: 4 Parts
