If you haven't heard of Donie before, where have you been? The Kerry CNN reporter rose to internet stardom when he covered the storming of the US Capitol.

And now that he's been nominated for an Emmy, a documentary is set to hit our screens showing his rise to the spotlight and the tough job he had reporting the incident back in January.

The Caherciveen man's latest piece of media is all about him, with Capitol Man set to air on RTÉ this autumn.

Previously working at Storyful in both New York and Dublin, Donie has been with CNN since 2016, working with their investigative journalism team.

He was nominated for an Emmy last month for his April 2020 story of how US military reservist Maatje Benassi ended up at the centre of a patient-zero conspiracy theory.

"This may be our most exciting Factual line-up to date. Despite an incredibly challenging year for production, the teams internally in RTÉ and at the many independent companies we work with, have truly excelled and delivered a wonderful selection of documentaries and factual programming for the new season," RTÉ’s group head of Factual Seán Mac Giolla Phádraig said.

"There are so many highlights for viewers: from Conor Ferguson’s beautiful tribute to his much-missed wife Keelin Shanley, to Nuala Cunningham and Gerry Gregg’s landmark documentary series on the Magdalene Laundries, Ireland’s Dirty Laundry.

"Our documentary lineup is also full of one-off gems: from the charm of Alex Fegan’s The Irish Wedding to Ken Wardrop’s Cocooned, which charts the experiences of Ireland’s over-70s as they navigate their way through the pandemic."
