Gemma & The Bear! is a modern, humorous twist on Jekyll & Hyde. Whenever nerdy-but-lovable Gemma goes to sleep, The Bear – a carpe diem-loving, fly-by-the-seat-of his pants gay, black man awakens in her place. The Bear protected Gemma when she was a bullied kid, but now he’s back to help her find love (Uh-Oh). It’s a show about how what we think is our biggest weakness can actually be our greatest strength.
