Moone Boy: Series 2
Ian directs the second series of the IFTA and International Emmy Award winning show.
Written by Chris O'Dowd, Moone Boy is the semi-autobiographical tale of Martin Moone (David Rawle) who creates an imaginary friend Sean, (Chris O'Dowd) to cope in a house full of women. The second series sees Martin navigate the tricky world of secondary school, the euphoria of Italia 90 and falling in love for the first time.
The second series premiered on Sky 1 on February 17th. Ian picked up the IFTA for Director of TV Drama for his work on the show.
Moone Boy is made for the 12-year-olds who might identify with Martin Moone (David Rawle), a 12-year-old who’s accompanied everywhere by his imaginary friend, Sean (Chris O’Dowd). But it’s also for the 12-year-old in all of us, particularly those of us who, like creator and co-star O’Dowd, were 12 or thereabouts in the summer of 1990.
