Gemma goes to sleep and turns into The Bear - a shape-shifting sit-com like you've never seen!

Gemma and The Bear is a modern, humorous twist on Jeckyl & 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.  As a bullied child, The Bear was Gemma's protector, but now she'd like to have a boyfriend . . . and stop feeling so tired all the time. It’s a show about how what we think is our biggest weakness can actually be the key to our success.
