Gbemisola Ikumelo, Hammed Animashaun and Akemnji Ndifornyen to star in new BBC comedy Black Ops.
The six-part series is set in East London and follows a pair of Community Support Officers desperate to clean up the community, but unwittingly end up in the dangerous world of deep cover infiltration.
Dom (Gbemisola Ikumelo) and Kay (Hammed Animashaun) are eager to help and make a difference so join the Met Police force, but find themselves out of their depth and in a fiasco more dangerous than either could anticipate.
Dom is feisty and always ready to stand up for himself and Kay comes across as naïve but proves herself to be more than capable.
The duo get wrapped up in a high stakes covert mission, which puts them face to face with Tevin (Akemnji Ndifornyen) one of the leaders of the Brightmarsh gang.
The high-concept comedy was created by Gbemisola Ikumelo and Akemnji Ndifornyen who worked together on BBC comedy sketch show Famalam.
Gbemisola Ikumelo commented: “It’s great to be working with Akemnji again after Famalam and Hammed is such a funny, brilliant, generous actor. I’m chomping at the bits to get started.”
Black Ops will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer next year.
