UK: Episodes 3 & 4 Of Staged Premiere On BBC One Tonight


The next two episodes of David Tennant’s new comedy series, Staged, premiere on BBC One in the UK tonight at 10.45pm. 


Staged sees David Tennant and Michael Sheen playing fictional versions themselves. In Staged the pair 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.

The series takes on the challenges of creating a drama in lockdown, on stage and off, with a line-up including Georgia Tennant, Lucy Eaton and Anna Lundberg. The show will also have a selection of guest stars including Nina Sosanya, with more to be confirmed in due course.

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

Based on an original idea by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn - Staged is written and directed by Evans and is an Infinity Hill/GCB Films production for BBC One. It was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content. The producers are Phin Glynn, Victor Glynn and Georgia Tennant. David Tennant and Michael Sheen are also executive producers of the series. Executive Producers for Infinity Hill are Axel Kuschevatzky and Cindy Teperman and for GCB, Geoff Iles.


Episode 3 Who the F#!k Is Michael Sheen?
An actor who was initially involved in the play, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, comes back to haunt the production. Georgia has sold her novel and tells Anna that she’s due to be a birthing partner for her friend. Michael is blackmailed by his neighbour.

Episode 4 Bara Brith
Michael and David are finding it hard to regain each other’s trust, so the show’s producer, Jo, steps in to try and repair the damage. Meanwhile, Michael gets drawn deeper into the situation with his neighbour, while David is nervous about Georgia leaving to help her friend in labour.
Staged continues Wednesdays at 10.45pm on BBC One. 
The entire box set is available to stream on on iPlayer now.
