The BBC today announced a new lockdown comedy, Staged, for BBC One.

 Starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, Staged (6x15) features the cast of a play who are furloughed when their upcoming West End production is suddenly brought to a halt. The series follows the cast as they try their best to keep the rehearsals on track in lockdown. 

Staged 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 will also have a selection of guest stars including Nina Sosanya, with more to be confirmed in due course. 

Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content said: “It’s vital that the BBC provides moments of light relief and this mischievous idea shows what great sports Michael and David are in sending themselves up.” 

The Staged production team are following the latest government guidelines on Covid-19 to ensure that the series is made safely and responsibly, using a combination of self-shooting and video conferencing technology, all in accordance with the latest protocols. 

Based on an original idea by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn - Staged is written and directed by Evans. 

The series will air in June on BBC One and will be available as a box set on BBC iPlayer after transmission.
