Michael Sheen and David Tennant filming Staged Series 2

David Tennant and Michael Sheen are filming a second series of Staged, their critically acclaimed BBC One sitcom which sees them interacting via Zoom calls.

British Comedy Guide, 22nd October 2020

Staged (BBC One) is the latest lockdown drama - lockdown dramas being an entire new genre, which Wikipedia will define as "a needs-must 2020 phenomenon in which, under the strictures of coronavirus, a rich person is seen questioning their values, a poor person is seen struggling yet being gamely cheeky, and core workers are celebrated. The genre must feature a Zoom-glitch or similar technological embarrassment." And yet Staged was a hugely refreshing addition to the genre, featuring simply a couple of immensely personable actors playing heightened versions of themselves. David Tennant and Michael Sheen, aided hugely by wives Georgia Tennant and Anna Lundberg, are lockdown-rehearsing an unpalatable, 100-year-old absurdist Italian drama, urged and egged on by Simon Evans, who wrote and directed Staged, and gave himself, in fairness, the very worst lines, the lines which those aged eight to 80 will lift eyebrows to and wonder "Did he really say that? What a dick."

It is grand fun, even if slight, although I suspect that the good friends Sheen and Tennant are, no matter how inadvertently, auditioning even in lockdown for the next series of The Trip.
