UK: Prime Time Repeat For Staged on BBC One In July



David Tennant's new comedy series Staged draws to a close next Wednesday night in the UK, but viewers will be delighted to learn that a repeat run begins less than a fortnight later. 

Staged begins its repeat run on BBC One on Monday 6th July at 9.45pm, directly after the BBC's new six-part drama series The Secrets She Keeps. Episodes will air on Monday and Tuesday nights over three weeks in July. 

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. The series stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen, playing fictional versions themselves, with the premise that 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 also has a selection of guest stars including Nina Sosanya.
