BBC One’s Lockdown Comedy 'STAGED'

01st June, 2020

'OnSight have been tremendous. Notwithstanding our implausible schedule they delivered world class material to us in a calm, courteous, unflustered and timely manner. I would unhesitatingly work with them again and recommend them to anyone who asked.' - Victor Glynn, Producer

'A huge thanks to everyone here for managing to get a whole series (!) to such an extraordinary place in such a short time. I am so grateful. And thrilled.' - Simon Evans, Director

OnSight provided post production on the brand new BBC lockdown Comedy 'Staged' starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen. Produced for BBC One by Infinity Hill and GCB Films and will air 10th June. Written and directed by Simon Evans and producing partner Phin Glynn. 

“Staged” turns on the cast of a play, described as the cream of British acting talent, who, furloughed when their upcoming West End production comes to a halt, attempt to keep rehearsals on track despite lockdown.

Producers are Phin Glynn, Victor Glynn and Georgia Tennant. David Tennant and Michael Sheen executive produce. Executive producers for Infinity Hill are Axel Kuschevatzky and Cindy Teperman and for GCB, Geoff Iles. The series will also be available as a box set on BBC iPlayer after transmission.

The 6 x 15 minutes episodes are filmed by self-shooting and video conference technology, as well as Tennant and Sheen portraying lockdown at the expense of their own dignity. The cast also includes actor Georgia Tennant and Anna Lundberg, Tennant and Sheen’s partners in real-life, as well as theater actress Lucy Eaton.

“It’s so important that the BBC provides moments of humor and light relief and this mischievous idea shows what great sports Michael and David are,” said Charlotte Moore, director BBC Content, who commissioned the show.

‘Staged’ has been a great example of quality Post Production with remote working and social distancing in place. Billed as “absurd and humorous in equal measure” ‘Staged’ has brought light relief for the team at OnSight. We can't wait for the show to be aired in June. With Colourist Ellory Payne, Sound Design by Andy Coles and Joana Coelho as Post Producer.
