A POPULAR online series created by actor and comedian Kayode Ewumi  has been commissioned by BBC Three.

The 22-year-old actor shared the news on social media today (April 18) with a video letting fans know that his famed Hood Documentary would be “coming soon” on the online platform.

“Is this what you’ve been waiting for?,” he teased.

Hood Documentary, the mockumentary he co-created with Tyrell Williams, has helped Kayode become a huge online star and won him fans in grime stars Stormzy and Skepta.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the actor, who plays the much-loved character of ‘R.S’ in the series, star in a one-off special of hit 1970s sitcom Are You Being Served? later this year.

Kayode is second black and minority actor to take a role in the BBC sitcom since 1985 and will play Mr Conway, described simply as a “new member of staff” designed to help shake things up.
