USA: Staged Starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen Available On Hulu from Today

The wait is over for fans in the USA as Staged finally drops on Hulu today. The UK series sees Good Omens stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen reunite as exaggerated versions of themselves in this hilarious lockdown comedy. Created by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn and produced by Infinity Hill and GCB Films for the BBC, the six-part show was filmed using video conferencing and self-tape techniques to get round COVID-19 restrictions. 

The premise of Staged is that David and Michael 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 has a selection of guest stars including Dame Judi Dench, Samuel L Jackson and Nina Sosanya.

Staged has been viewed more than 20 million times in the UK, according to the producers.
