Double BAFTA-nominee, Gbemisola Ikumelo was nominated in the ‘Female Performance in a Comedy Programme’ category for her role in Famalam (she also writes for the series) and the ‘Short Form Programme’ category for Brain in Gear, which she wrote, co-directed and starred in. Brain in Gear went on to win the ‘Short Form Programme’ award in 2020 and has been commissioned for a full series by BBC Two. Brain in Gear is a flat-share comedy where the nightmare tenants are the voices inside 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 plays the role of all three Remi’s.
