Michael Sheen and David Tennant, stars of the Amazon limited series Good Omens, are re-teaming for a new comedy series from the BBC.
Created by Simon Evans and Phin Glynn, the lockdown comedy Staged will feature Tennant and Sheen as a pair of furloughed actors from a West End theater production during the coronavirus pandemic. The series will follow the cast as they try to keep rehearsals on track during the lockdown, with humorous and absurd results.

The series, which will consist of six, 15-minute episodes will also feature Georgia Tennant, Lucy Eaton, Anna Lundberg and some yet-to-be-confirmed guest stars. Tennant and Sheen are executive producers alongside Axel Kuschevatzky and Cindy Teperman for Infinity Hill, and Geoff Iles for GCB.
The series will premiere next month on BBC One and will be available as a box set on iPlayer.
