The BBC today announces a brand new lockdown comedy, Staged, from Infinity Hill and GCB Films for BBC One.

Starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, Staged (6x15) features the cast of a play - the cream of the crop of British acting talent - 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.

They have proven themselves to be quite the team. BTW Michael Sheen has been paying for the security of the Banksey mural that turned up near Port Talbot in South Wales. I've seen the mural and it's awesome. p078j7my.jpg

I hope everyone in the UK will enjoy it. :) It sounds like fun. Hopefully it will come down the Antipodes at some point.

Yes, that's just over half a minute.

Spoiler:


Someone on twitter
[ 365 Day Sheen Challenge!@sheen365 ]

came up with a recipe for him...

"Chop and roast carrots, toss with the feta cheese and dried thyme if you have it. Cut open pita bread, brush with oil and toast, top pita toast with carrot/feta mixture for mini pita pizzas! Slice grapes to go on the side."

LOL! "You're no help...." ;)

It's pretty easy to eat healthy. I, for instance, take one mandarin and half-a-dozen strawberries (chilled in the fridge), slice the strawberries in quarters, then mix to make a refreshing fruit salad. :) To that, I add a toasted sandwich (with Dijon mustard, plus some slices of cold cuts), and a little tub of yoghurt. Voila! That's my lunch. ;)

What do you do to stay healthy during the COVID crisis, hmm? Just wondering - not trying to pry. :)

There is serious talk of a possible sequel to "Staged," because it has been far more popular than anyone involved realized it would be.
