Black Ops | Preview (BBC One)

Gbemisola Ikumelo, Hammed Animashaun and Akemnji Ndifornyen are set to star in high-concept comedy thriller, Black Ops, produced by BBC Studios Comedy Productions and Mondo Deluxe for BBC One.

Set in East London, Black Ops is the story of Dom and Kay, two Police Community Support Officers who join the Met Police in the hope of cleaning up their community but are unwittingly thrust into the murky world of deep cover infiltration. For Dom and Kay their lives quickly become more of a fiasco than Donnie Brasco.

Dom, played by Ikumelo, is feisty and takes no nonsense while Animashaun plays Kay her naïve, but surprisingly capable partner who lives with his church elder. The pair are soon thrust into a high stakes secret mission where they find themselves out of their depth facing one of the leaders of the Brightmarsh gang, Tevin, played by Ndifornyen.

Gbemisola Ikumelo, Executive Producer, Co-Creator, Writer and Actor 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.”

Hammed Animashaun, Actor, commented: “I’m so so excited to be a part of the Black Ops family! I’ve been a huge fan of AK and Gbemi and to be working alongside both of them, is an absolute honour! I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been up to!''

Josh Cole, Executive Producer and Head of Comedy, BBC Studios, commented: “Black Ops is an ambitious comedy thriller that defies traditional genre expectations. The scripts are gripping and hilarious, and we’re delighted to have Gbemi, Hammed & AK leading our talented cast”.

Black Ops begins Friday 05th May at 9:30pm on BBC One.
