About This Episode

This week Danny & Mero welcome yet another Borough legend to the award winning Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel.  Dave Coffey is a name you may not be overly familiar with but you will definitely have seen his work over the past 10 years. Back in 2007 Dave brought a young couple called Dan & Becs to Irish screens and since then we've been treated to more of his ideas in the form of Sarah & Steve, The Commute and Fade Street.  We talked to Dave about the process of TV writing and where his ideas came from as well as projects that don't make it to the small screen - including Peter Kay pipping Dave to a big UK deal.  Besides the TV craic Dave is also a big fan of pro wrestling, much like the lads are so it was inevitable that we would end up talking about men in tights and all things rasslin'.  Housekeeping this weeks talks about Danny guarding Derren Brown's secrets, Mero asks about Danny's social media rants and we look at how Mero and Louis Van Gall have something in common.
