VIDEO: Watch the New Webseries GEMMA & THE BEAR, from THE FANTASTICKS Actor

Your nightmares have never been this bold and bizarre. From the award-winning co-creative team of Eevin Hartsough and Kevin R. Free (Off-Broadway's The Fantasticks), and directed by an award-winning filmmaker Matt Scott (Once A Loser, Cannes '14) comes a new webseries GEMMA & THE BEAR. Click below to watch the first two episodes, plus the trailer!

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. 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 our greatest strength.

GEMMA & THE BEAR stars Eevin Hartsough (The Miracle Worker) as Gemma, and Kevin R. Free (The Fantasticks) as The Bear, also starring DeBargo Sanyal (The Magic of Belle Isle), Natalie Kim (Channel Frederator), JoJo Gonzalez (The Smurfs), Ray DeMattis (Grease; The Cosby Show), and featuring Marc Sinoway (Hunting Season).

MYCARL PRODUCTIONS presents GEMMA & THE BEAR, created, produced, and written by EEVIN HARTSOUGH and KEVIN R. FREE produced by KATIE ROSIN, director of photography JASON WHITAKER, music by CARL RIEHL, MATTHEW KAJCIENSKI, JAMES TATE, & SPRINGBOARD TRACKS, directed and edited by MATT SCOTT.
