INTERVIEW: David Tennant And Michael Sheen On Staged - “It’s a pleasure to create slightly ghastly versions of ourselves”


David Tennant and Michael Sheen are interviewed in the new issue of TV Times which is out today. In it they chat about their new socially distanced comedy series, Staged, which is coming to BBC one next week.

Staged sees David and Michael playing themselves. They were due to star in a production of Six Characters in Search of an Author in the West End. The pandemic has put paid to that, but their director (Simon Evans - also playing himself) is determined not to let the opportunity pass him by. He knows how big a chance this is for him and turns his attention to cajoling his stars into rehearsing over the internet.
All they need to do is read the first scene, but throughout the series they come up against a multitude of oppositional forces: distraction, boredom, home-schooling and their own egos...

Watch Staged on BBC One at 10.45pm from Wednesday 10th June.
TV Times is out now.
