Acorn TV features the exclusive U.S. Premiere of Acorn TV Original Irish legal drama "STRIKING OUT," Series 2 on March 16 (St. Patrick’s Day weekend).

Series 1 was Ireland’s #1 new drama and one of the top series of 2017 for Acorn TV.

The 2017 Irish Film and TV Academy winner for “Actress in a Leading Role - Drama” and recent 2018 nominee Amy Huberman (The Clinic) and Neil Morrissey (Line of Duty, Grantchester, The Night Manager) return for the longer, six-part second season.

Huberman plays Tara Rafferty, a successful Dublin lawyer who, after discovering her fiancée having an affair, abandons her wedding plans and job and starts an unconventional private practice.

Called a “glorious streaming service… an essential must-have” (The Hollywood Reporter), Acorn TV is North America’s most popular streaming service specializing in British and international television from RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE).

Acorn Media Enterprises, the UK-based development division for the Acorn brand, is the North American co-producer.

In Series 2, Tara strikes back. Confidently now her own boss, morally-challenging scenarios will push Tara and her team in their personal and professional lives.

Tara and Eric’s complex relationship remains center stage, and the arrival of Eric’s brother Sam brings added tension and intrigue.

Eric will face tough personal and professional choices in this series as he investigates the increasingly dubious actions of his father, Richard Dunbar.

Tara finds herself sharing an office space with the formidable George Cusack, a criminal solicitor with a sharp mind and even sharper tongue.

Her parents’ marriage faces new challenges as her mother, Irene, comes into her own and her father, Conrad, emerges as a complex and powerful figure.

Ray seizes new opportunities by starting legal studies but faces personal challenges as he struggles to find a balance between his old life and the new path he’s trying to forge for himself.

Meg’s betrayal at the end of series one leaves her in a game of cat and mouse with Tara and facing a moral dilemma, as she’s stuck in the middle of two opposing worlds.

Vincent wrestles with personal and private demons while heading a public inquiry that threatens to implicate the upper echelons of the Irish political and social elite – the repercussions of which will collide Tara’s personal and professional lives even further.
