Stags, an original drama from Sex Education producer Eleven, has been ordered by Paramount+.
The six-parter follows groom-to-be Stu and his friends as they attend his bachelor party in South America. What was meant to be a celebration full of drink, debauchery and fun takes a dark turn when the stags are sent to a lawless prison island.
Nico Mirallegro (Passenger) stars as Stu, while Corin Silva (SAS: Rogue Heroes) and Charlie Cooper (This Country) play Stu’s close childhood friends. Newcomer Sophie Lenglinger (Druid O’Casey: Sean O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy) and Paul Forman (Emily in Paris) also join the cast, alongside Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing) and more.
Sebastian Cardwell, deputy chief content officer for the U.K. at Paramount, said, “Quality local content for Paramount+ is something that we are passionate about, and Stags is an excellent addition to our 2024 roster of U.K. original series. With the team at Eleven at the helm and an exciting ensemble cast, Stu’s stag do promises to be a wild, gripping ride that we can’t wait to bring viewers on.”
Carissa Hope Lynch, executive producer, said, “The incredible cast and standout creative team are a real testament to Daniel’s distinct and darkly comic scripts. Stags is a balls out series, packed with plot twists that’ll give the keenest genre buff whiplash. We’re so thrilled to bring this savage tale to Paramount+.”
