I realized it was probably very rich territory. For McGee, the show is a more truthful representation of the Troubles, and of the Northern Irish comic sensibility. It is the most popular series in the country since modern records began inaccording to its U. A mural depicting the cast has been painted in the city center — a potent of change in a place where murals typically display partisan propaganda. Now in its second season, the sitcom has become a cult favorite in the U.
As a teenager, McGee often had to go on cross-community projects, aimed at fostering understanding between Protestants and Catholics. Like Erin, McGee grew up in a working-class, Catholic family. An overwhelmingly Catholic city near the border with the Republic of Ireland, Derry has a long been a flashpoint of tension.
We grew up in this really scary, violent time, yet no one locked their doors. The series is filmed in Belfast and Derry, which can create some humorous misunderstandings.
At 37, McGee is a member of a generation straddling peace and conflict. But she did receive feedback asking her to write more Protestant characters. In the Season 2 premiere, Erin and her friends go on a retreat with boys from a Protestant school. Everyone just wants to get off with each other. But I look back at it fondly. These Protestant people were obviously exactly the same as us, but they were these exotic creatures.
In another episode inspired by real life, Erin and the gang sneak off to Belfast for a Take That concert and wind up on the nightly news.
The boy band played in the city in McGee was there but not close enough to see anything. McGee is already writing Season 3. She sees the Good Friday Agreement, ed inas a logical ending point for her story.
