ABOUT THE SERIES
On the tail end of a fruitless excavation, a team of astoundingly unsuccessful archaeologists on the
brink of unemployment unwittingly discover an ancient Celtic secret that upends the beloved history of a rural Irish hamlet and catalyzes a series of inexplicable – if not supernatural – events that will fundamentally alter them all.
Groundbreaking’s ensemble cast is made up of notable actors hailing from nine different countries, including Chinese-Irish actor and comedy sketch creator Steven He whose meteoric rise to YouTube stardom has garnered him 11 million followers and over 1 billion views across his social media channels, and helmed by actress Natalie Cutler - known best for her remarkable one-woman show, “Not Yet Suffragette."
