Kayode Ewumi's New Show 'Enterprice' Will Premiere Nov. 13 on BBC Three

The Nigerian-British comedian who gave us the iconic, meme-ready Roll Safe character is back with a new comedy series.

We've been anticipating Nigerian-British comedian Kayode Ewumi's next move since the success of #HoodDocumentary and we're ready to laugh our asses off with his new BBC Three sitcom, Enterprice.


Here's the synopsis:

"Kazim and Jeremiah are two young entrepreneurs in the early stages of rolling out their home delivery service, Speedi-Kazz. Both are blessed with different skill-sets: Kazim has the energy and confidence, Jeremiah has the brains - but on occasion these differences can leave them at loggerheads. We follow their fledgling business, and this awkward bromance, as it makes its way into the homes of Kazim and Jeremiah's fellow Londoners."

Enterprice is set to premiere on Monday, Nov. 13 and will also star Daniel Ezra (Undercover), Ivanno Jeremiah (Humans) and Femi Elufowoju Jr. (Borgen).

Revisit an episode of #HoodDocumentary below.
