Starring Will Forte (Saturday Night Live, MacGruber), Siobhán Cullen (Obituary, The Dry), Robyn Cara (We Die Young, Trying), Chris Walley (The Young Offenders, Bloodlands) and David Wilmot (Anna Karenina, Intermission), BODKIN is produced by Michelle and Barack Obama’s Higher Ground Productions. Jez Scharf created, wrote, and was co-showrunner on the series, with Alex Metcalf as the other showrunner who also worked as co-writer.
Will Forte who plays American podcaster Gilbert said: “One of the most exciting things about working in Ireland is getting to shoot on location. Most of the time we’re out in these beautiful rolling pastures or on these cliff sides. Every scene seems like it’s taking place in this delicious morsel of Irish landscape.”
