Filming has started and the casting has been confirmed on new Two Brothers comedy “Dinosaur.”

BBC Comedy and BBC Scotland have picked up the Glasgow set six part series for BBC Three and the BBC Scotland Channel.

Created by Matilda Curtis and Ashley Storrie, “Dinosaur” follows Nina (Ashley Storrie), an autistic woman in her 30s, who adores her life living with her sister and best friend Evie. However, when Evie rushes into an engagement after only six weeks and makes Nina her maid of honour, Nina is floored. Forced to reconcile with her sister’s impulsive decision, Nina grapples with what this new challenge means, leading to a surprising journey of self-discovery.

Ashley Storrie stars alongside Kat Ronney (“The Royal Mob”) as Evie. The two are joined by David Carlyle (“It’s A Sin”) as Bo, Lorn Macdonald (“BEATS”, “The Lazarus Project”, “Bridgerton”) as Lee and Danny Ashok (“Roadkill”, “Capital”) as Ranesh.
