The hour-long special will feature Mairead Molloy (pictured), global director of high-end dating agency Berkeley International, as she plays matchmaker to the rich and famous. With fees of up to US$40,000, Molloy provides straightforward advice and guidance to a high-rolling clientele who have earned, inherited, or won their money.

Zig Zag and Indie TV, who retain the project’s rights outside of Ireland, will shop the final product and its format rights to international broadcasters at next month’s MIPCOM market in Cannes.

Danny Fenton serves as executive producer for Zig Zag Productions, with Mark Rowland exec producing for Indie TV. Grainne McAleer commissioned the show for RTÉ2.
