Paramount+ has green-lit a new UK drama starring Nico Mirallegro (Passenger), Corin Silva (SAS: Rogue Heroes), and Charlie Cooper (This Country).
STAGS follows groom-to-be Stu (Mirallegro) and his friends on his stag do in South America. What was meant to be a week of drink, debauchery and fun takes a dark turn. Instead of boarding a flight back to the UK, the stags are sent to a lawless prison island run by two warring siblings.
Quickly it becomes clear that the stags need to pick a side to have any chance of survival. Friendships are tested and life-long loyalty is sacrificed as Stu and his mates begin to question who will make it home alive.
Also joining the cast are newcomer Sophie Lenglinger (Druid O’Casey: Sean O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy), Paul Forman (Emily in Paris), and Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing) will also join the cast as Stu’s workmate, Greg.
David Kerr (Johnny English Strikes Again, Inside No.9) is lead director while Daniel Cullen (Breeders, Bad Sisters) is series creator. Cullen serves as co-executive producer alongside Carissa Hope Lynch, Joel Wilson, Olivia Trench, Jamie Campbell, and Kerr who will executive produce across the series. Farah Abushwesha serves as producer.
