AUSTRALIA: Staged ‘The Cookie Jar ’ Premieres On ABC COMEDY Tonight

Image
The first series of  David Tennant's lockdown comedy series Staged concludes in Australia tonight at 8.30pm on ABC COMEDY. It is also available to stream on ABC iView.  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. 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by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn - Staged is written and directed by Evans and is an Infinity Hill/GCB Films production originally made for

The drama will launch exclusively on Starz's international streaming service in France, Germany and Spain on Sunday 29th November.  Des focuses on one of the most infamous criminal cases in UK history, Dennis Nilsen. Known as the ‘kindly killer’, Nilsen (David Tennant) was a local civil servant who spent five years murdering boys and young men he met on the streets of Soho from 1978 to 1983. He would meet and befriend these men before offering them food or lodgings for the evening back at his North London flat. His victims were often homeless or living off grid, having slipped through the cracks of 1980s society and were therefore welcoming of this stranger’s apparent generosity. When he was finally caught on 9 February 1983, Nilsen had murdered a total of fifteen men over a period of five years, making him Britain’s most prolific serial k

David Tennant contributed to the 2020 Adobe MAX Creativity Conference today as a speaker in the session Graphic Design: From Blank Screen to Brilliant. David talked about taking part in the huge busy international project Around The World In 80 Days, which was shut down after three weeks production due to the coronavirus pandemic. He contrasted this with being locked down in London, with his return to work unknown and the future for those in the creative industries uncertain. David explained how, out of this, people were coming up with ways to be creative without leaving home, and as a result, Staged was born. However, while he was delighted that he and the other cast and creatives of the comedy show had the opportunity to work, it is still a challenging time for the creative industries, with no certainty that theatres will be re-opening in the near future. With many of the UK's best known performers, David included, starting off in theatre, he urges that it is important that the i
