AUSTRALIA: Staged Starring David Tennant & Michael Sheen Comes To ABC From September 21




The UK lockdown comedy Staged, starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, is coming to ABC Comedy in Australia later this month. Comprising of six 15-minute episodes, Staged sees David Tennant and Michael Sheen playing fictional versions themselves and was filmed using a combination of self-shooting and video conferencing technology to confirm with government COVID-19 guidelines. 

In Staged, the pair are 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 has a selection of guest stars including Dame Judi Dench, Samuel L Jackson and Nina Sosanya.

Watch Staged on ABC Comedy from 8.30pm on Monday 21st September.
