Staged, filmed in lockdown, will consist of 6 15 min eps about a group of actors who have been furloughed. Starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen. Coming to BBC One in June, looking forward to this!!
If I was being cynical I would say that considering how few actors and people in the industry have been furloughed, to then pay two of the highest earning actors to do a job where they play furloughed actors does seem a tad cruel.

To me, it would only be cruel if they were taking the p*ss? It's no different to Isolation Stories on ITV, one of those centered around a hypochondriac actor on a video call with his therapist. I'm just gonna enjoy it I think!

Watched the first 2 last night, too. Laugh out loud hilarious. Brilliant concept, brilliantly executed. Loved it. Those two have such fantastic chemistry, even over zoom. Not that the theatre scene needs a play with two straight, white, middle class men but I would love to see them in a play together when this is all over. But what? Will keep watching weekly on BBC1 so I don't binge it too quick!
Just watched the first two episodes. Loved it. Very funny and just what we need right now. Partners are great too especially David Tennents. Loved the Sylvia Young joke in episode 1. I'm am going to try and not binge watch it so that I have something to look forward to each week.
Just finished the series, what an absolutely joy that was. I haven't full on belly laughed at anything for a long time but this was the perfect tonic. I love the final episode, I won't spoil it for those that haven't seen it.
