In Conversation with the Cast and Creatives of ‘Irreverent’

‘Irreverent’ Key Art

To those looking for a fresh beginning, starting your life over in a tiny town in a different country may sound ideal. However, picking up your life and moving across the world to escape a mess you’ve created and fabricating a new identity is an entirely different story.

Such is the premise of Peacock’s new original series Irreverent

The 10-episode crime drama follows a criminal mediator from Chicago named Paulo Keegan, who is skilled at keeping the peace between the city’s organized crime families. However, when a situation goes awry, he is is forced to flee from everything he knows and hide out in a small Australian reef community in Far North Queensland posing as the new church Reverend. Keegan is going to need all his considerable street smarts to pull off posing as clergy – something he doesn’t know the first thing about. If he slips up, it’s game over. 

Starring Colin Donnell, PJ Byrne, and Kylie Bracknell, Irreverent is now available to stream.
