NEW ZEALAND: Staged Comes To UKTV Next Month

BBC One's award-winning comedy show Staged finally arrives in New Zealand next month with a June 15th premiere on UKTV. 

Filmed during the UK's COVID-19 lockdown using video-conferencing technologies, Staged stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen as exaggerated versions of themselves, two actors who were due to perform in a play that has now been shelved by the pandemic. Their director, Simon Evans, who also wrote and directed the series, hits upon the idea of continuing rehearsals over Zoom, but can the play survive its stars' bickering, paranoia and ego clashes? Staged also stars Georgia Tennant, Anna Lundberg, Lucy Eaton and Nina Sosanya, with some surprise guest stars. 

The show premiered in June 2020 in the UK and was renewed for a second season which aired in January this year.

Watch the first two episodes of Staged on Tuesday from 8.30pm on UKTV.
