Launching on BBC1 in the UK today, Staged (6×22′) features the cast of a play who are furloughed when their upcoming production is suddenly brought to a halt.

David Tennant and Michael Sheen star in the show, which is produced by Infinity Hill and GCB Films Production and written and directed by Simon Evans.

Graham Begg has founded Rainmaker Content with fellow former Kew Media exec Greg Phillips to focus on drama, factual and special event programming.

Begg said: “We are thrilled that we can launch Rainmaker with such an exceptional series that really speaks of our time.

“With stellar acting talent, alongside award-winning writing and production teams, this lockdown drama is funny, poignant and so relevant to now – wherever you are in the world.

“It is a clear indication of the calibre of programming that we intend to represent on the global stage as we build our business.”
