Pilou Asbaek filming in Scotland!

We just discovered this morning from the man himself that Pilou Asbaek is over in Scotland to film a new BBC2 series called Stag!

{contains spoilers from here on}

Apparently it is a 3 part dark comedy thriller about a horrific stag weekend in the Scottish Highlands.  The BBC report it as ‘…several obnoxious friends on a deer-stalking expedition in the Scottish Highlands. As the hunting party realises they themselves are the prey, sordid secrets begin to emerge and old friendships are tested to the limit in a ruthless battle for survival.’

Each part will be 60 minutes long and the story was created and written by BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Jim Field Smith (The Wrong Mans, Episodes) and George Kay (The Tunnel, Our Zoo, The Hour) and produced and directed by Jim Field Smith. Other actors involved are Jim Howick, Stephen Campbell Moore,  JJ Feild, Reece Shearsmith, Rufus Jones, James Cosmo, Tim Key, Amit Shah and Sharon Rooney and Christiaan Van Vuuren.  Field Smith said ‘“I can’t believe this fantastic roster of talent is joining us for seven weeks of hell in the Highlands, and can only assume they haven’t read the scripts properly.’
