Kate O’Riordan on “Smother”, Writing and the Power of Irish Women

Smother was intended to be a show about stepmothers, but then the series, aired by Irish broadcaster RTE, took a completely new turn, explains Irish writer Kate O’Riordan who is behind the show. The novelist, who started in television by adapting “Involved”, her first book, into an ITV series, had several TV credits before Smother, the most well-known and successful internationally probably being Mr Selfridge with Jeremy Piven in the lead.
