David Tennant on Staged

David Tennant and Michael Sheen lead the cast in Staged which was a comedy series for BBC One during lockdown.

There were 6 episodes and the series started broadcast on Wednesday 10th June 2020. Two episodes were shown from 10.45pm that evening.

Staged featured the cast of a play who are furloughed when their upcoming West End production is suddenly brought to a halt. The series followed the cast as they try their best to keep the rehearsals on track in lockdown.

Absurd and humorous in equal measure, Staged takes on the challenges of creating a drama in lockdown, on stage and off, with a line-up including Lucy Eaton, Anna Lundberg and Georgia Tennant. The show will also included guest star Nina Sosanya.

Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content was quotes as saying: "It's vital that the BBC provides moments of light relief and this mischievous idea shows what great sports Michael and David are in sending themselves up."

The Staged production team followed the latest government guidelines on Covid-19 to ensure that the series is made safely and responsibly using a combination of self-shooting and video conferencing technology in accordance with the latest protocols.

Based on an original idea by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn, Staged was written and directed by Evans and was an Infinity Hill/GCB Films production for BBC One. David Tennant and Michael Sheen were also executive producers of Staged.

The entire series was made available as a box set on BBC iPlayer after transmission of the first two episodes.

Staged was shown by the streaming service Hulu in the US, ABC Comedy in Australia and Huanxi Media Group in China.

BBC Media Centre has released Question and Answers with David Tennant and Michael Sheen about the first series of Staged.

A second series of Staged premiered on BBC One on Monday 4th January 2021. It premiered in the US on Hulu on Tuesday 16th March.

A Staged script book will be published on Thursday 16th September 2021.
