Series 1
PLEBS, the brand new comedy (as seen on itv2) follows three desperate young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city – a city that happens to be Ancient Rome!

Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry) and their lazy slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) live in a grotty apartment block run by a dodgy Landlord (Karl Theobald) and work in dead end jobs for a ruthless boss Flavia (Doon Mackichan). But when a couple of fit Britons Cynthia (Sophie Colquhoun) and Metella (Lydia Rose Bewley) arrive in the neighbourhood things start to look up.

Also featuring cameos from a host of familiar faces including Danny Dyer, as geezer gladiator Cassius.

From orgy etiquette to being bashful down the bathhouse, this is Ancient Rome like you’ve never seen before. And while the lads may don skimpy tunics instead of skinny jeans, the story of boys on the hunt for love and lust is timeless.

Series 2
Since series one the world has progressed (from 27BC to 26BC) but flat-mates Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry) and slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) have made no strides whatsoever.

Marcus’ ongoing crush Cynthia (Sophie Colquhoun) is still ignoring his advances, with her own slave Metella (Lydia Rose Bewley) on hand to keep him at bay. And Stylax wants to become a champion charioteer. Who cares if he doesn’t own a chariot and can’t drive? Their fearsome boss Flavia (Doon Mackichan) and water-pouring colleague, Aurelius (Tom Basden) torment them at work. While at home, business is booming for dodgy Landlord (Karl Theobald) who is now accompanied by massive henchman, Davus (Tom Davis).

Follow the antics of these three under achievers on their desperate quest to live the ‘when in Rome’ maxim to the full. Featuring special Guest Stars Simon Callow, Shaun Williamson, Neil Stuke, Lauren Socha, Tim Key, James Fleet and Paul Ritter.

Series 3
Emperor Augustus Caesar is still the most powerful man in the known world. And languishing somewhere near the other end of the food chain are three lowly plebs: Marcus, Stylax and their feckless slave, Grumio (Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson).

As the ancestors of ‘generation rent’ they live in a squalid block in the worst part of town - presided over by the ruthless Landlady (Maureen Lipman). They work dead-end jobs for Rome’s third largest grain supply company. And though the Games are in town, they can’t get tickets for any event - not even the pig chase. But an encounter with a fiery Gallic activist, Delphine (Bella Dayne) might at least improve Marcus’ romantic stakes. Could she possibly become his Gaul-friend? Or is she just a bit too real for him?

As well as their regular nemeses, this year our Plebs encounter a legion of new Roman recruits: visiting parents (Samantha Spiro, Danny Webb, Steve Edge), a brazen Vestal Virgin (Michelle Keegan), a doping discus thrower (Ingrid Oliver), a theatrical grande dame (Miriam Margolyes) and an ancient weatherman (David Bamber).

Let the Games begin...
