New BBC Two Comedy

Brain In GearBrain In Gear 









BBC Two has commissioned a new comedy Brain In Gear. 

Brain In Gear debuted as one of the BBC’s Comedy Shorts in 2019 and received a Bafta nomination for best short form programme. 

Written by and starring Gbemisola Ikumelo (Famalam, The Last Tree) Brain In Gear is a flat-share comedy where the nightmare tenants...are the voices in your head. The series follows Remi, a perfectly normal if somewhat anxious single woman in her late twenties, trying her best to navigate the contradictory advice from her inner thoughts. 

The series will continue the story of Remi as she attempts to get on with her life… but otherwise normal tasks like going to work and hanging out are made near impossible by the constant interruptions of her two alter egos Boss Bitch Remi and Dark Remi. 

Gbemisola Ikumelo said: “This is a legit dream coming true moment for me and I keep finding myself asking: 'Did the BBC actually just give me my own show?' I’m sure It will sink in soon enough, but for now I’m just revelling in all of the exciting possibilities that are presented by this becoming a series.” 

Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning, said: “This highly distinctive concept is ripe with comic potential and Gbemisola has fast become one of the leading comedy performers of her generation. Her range of characters is a joy to behold and we’re proud to see her spread her considerable talent wings as creator, writer and co-director of this very special mini-series.”
