UK: Staged ‘The Warthog And The Mongoose, Part 2’ Premieres On BBC One Tonight
The new series of Staged continues on BBC One tonight at 9.45pm. The full series is also available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
This series sees David Tennant and Michael Sheen attempt to navigate their ‘new normal’ at home with their increasingly exasperated families whilst simultaneously trying to tackle the world of ‘virtual Hollywood’ and their ever more fragile egos.
Also returning for the new series are Georgia Tennant, Anna Lundberg and Lucy Eaton alongside Nina Sosanya and Simon Evans with new addition to the regular cast Primetime Emmy-winner Ben Schwartz, playing the assistant to Michael and David’s American agent.
Following on from the surprise appearances in series one of Judi Dench and Samuel L Jackson this series sees the regulars joined in their virtual hell by a whole host of unexpected guests.
The series hopes to capture our shared feelings of frustration and confusion at a world not quite ready to re-open. Moments that promise normality dashed before they can take hold. The tantalising prospect of comfort kept at bay.
Episode 6 The Warthog And The Mongoose, Part 2
The project is in real danger. Simon hears desperate news from Georgia, via Lucy, and tries (once more) to get David and Michael to work together. But it ultimately falls to a final pair of new potential cast members to offer David and Michael a new perspective on their friendship. But is it too late?
