CHINA & NORTH AFRICA: Broadcast Deals Agreed For Staged


The UK's lockdown comedy series Staged will be airing in China and North Africa in the near future thanks to new broadcast deals struck by the international distributor Rainmaker Content.

The summer smash production starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen as fictionalised versions of themselves, was created by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn and filmed during lockdown using self-tape and video conferencing techniques. The show was written by Evans, who also co-starred along with Georgia Tennant and Anna Lundberg as the director of a play starring Michael and David. With the play on hold due to the coronavirus epidemic, Simon tries to convince his cast to carry on rehearsals over the internet, but is hampered by ego clashes, boredom, home-schooling and fall-outs with neighbours. 

The producers have revealed that home entertainment and TV operator Shout! Studios have picked up the series for North Africa and Huanxi Media Group will stream it in China. This is in addition to the recently announced deals with Hulu in North America, ABC in Australia and Netflix in the UK. 

Staged is a six-episode series produced  for the BBC by Infinity Hill and GCB Films Production. It originally aired on BBC One in June and has been streamed on BBC iPlayer 20 million times.
