BBC Two Controller Kim Shillinglaw has announced the commission of Stag, a new “darkly comic thriller”.
Created by Jim Field Smith (producer/director of The Wrong Mans) and George Kay, the three-part series follows a meek schoolteacher (Jim Howick – Peep Show, Babylon) as he struggles to survive the Stag weekend from hell.
He is joined by his future brother-in-law (Stephen Campbell Moore – Our Zoo, The Wrong Mans) and several obnoxious friends, on a deer-stalking expedition in the Scottish highlands. It quickly gets messier than anyone expected; as the hunters become the hunted, sordid secrets emerge and old friendships are tested to the limit.
