Unhappy 2008 chevy impala ss wont go into any gear

I have an 08 ss impala, tried to start my car this morning. It started up fine but when i tried to shift it into gear it would not engage any gear. To be clear it will shift through the gear ranges (P, `1R, N, D, 2, 1) but not engage any gear. just replaced the brake light switch lil over 1yr. ago. i took off the center console to try & release the shifter button but it didnt work? Please does anyone know whats going on...

Does the neutral safety switch lock the shifter in park? I though that is the case. In older cars you could use a screwdriver to unlock it. But I am not sure where that switch is on a 2008 Impala. I assume there is a little cover to pop off to access it. But maybe someone knowledgeable will chime in.

Sorry. Missed that part about the shifter being able to move through the gears.
