Dizzy Deliveries

Award-winning Dizzy Deliveries confirmed for a new series on RTÉjr from Monday 15 April

Award-winning smash hit children’s TV series Dizzy Deliveries is back, with season two premiering on 15th April on RTÉjr with all episodes available to view on the RTÉ Player from this date. After the phenomenal response to the first series, the captivating world of Dizzy Deliveries returns with brand new episodes full of adventures, fun and laughter.

Dizzy Deliveries is the first TV show to use the key word signing system Lámh. It recently won a prestigious Clio award at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Lámh is used by children and adults with Down syndrome, autism, and communication difficulties to support their communication and self-expression. As the drama unfolds in each episode Lámh signs are brought to life, as Joe, our erstwhile delivery man hilariously attempts to deliver his packages. Featuring children who use Lámh, they assist Joe in his chaotic and funny adventures. Dizzy Deliveries helps audiences to add Lámh to their own vocabulary in a fun and immersive way.

Series two will contain thirteen episodes, directed by BAFTA award-winning writer and director Nia Ceidiog (whose credits include Fireman Sam and Something Special with Mr. Tumbles for Cbeebies) with theme music from Maria Doyle Kennedy and Kieran Kennedy. This season features some great cameos from famous Irish faces including singer-songwriter Mundy, chef JP McMahon, Special Olympics gold medalist Timothy Morahan, and horticulturalist Diarmuid Gavin.

Series 1 of Dizzy Deliveries broke new ground in Irish broadcasting. It quickly became a beloved fixture on the TV schedule and the most-watched RTÉjr commission on the RTÉ Player. Young viewers adored the show, in particular the families of loved ones with intellectual disabilities and communication needs. Importantly, the show also engaged children who don’t have those needs but who are fans of Joe and his robot sidekick Ozzy and his boss Aisling.

Dizzy Deliveries is produced by the award-winning production company Macalla Teoranta, responsible for Home School Hub as well as several awarding-winning feature films from Róise & Frank to Ireland’s entry into the 2020 Oscars, Arracht.  Jointly funded by Coimisiún na Meán and RTÉ the series was shortlisted for a Royal Television Society award in 2023.

Speaking ahead of the new series, Suzanne Kelly, Group Head of Children’s and Young People’s content at RTÉ said: “RTÉjr is thrilled to be part of the exhilarating and important journey of Dizzy Deliveries. As we embark on Season 2’s premiere on RTÉjr & RTÉ Player, I am reminded of the profound impact our show has had. From helping to break down barriers to igniting new avenues of communication through Lámh signing, every episode is a testament to the power of inclusion and possibility. It’s Public Service television at its very best as Joe, Aisling, Ozzy and of course the real stars, the kids, spread laughter, learning and joy.  We are proud to play a part in supporting this talented production team who bring Dizzy Deliveries 2 to our screens.”

Mary Cullen, Manager of Lámh said of “Dizzy Deliveries TV show with Lámh signing has been a dream come true for families, children who use Lámh and everyone in their communities! It’s a massive hit with families, schools, pre-schools and everyone, who all love learning Lámh signs in a fun way with Joe, Aisling, Ozzy and friends.”

Families who use Lámh signs at home have told us how so many people are watching Dizzy Deliveries and are using Lámh signs now at school, at pre-school, playing sports and in the community, which helps with fun, friendship and inclusion for everyone.

Dizzy Deliveries Series 2 will give us more adventures, more excitement and more Lámh signing, we can’t wait!”
