Plebs

The multi award-winning comedy series about three Ancient Roman hormonal lads
A thoroughly modern comedy in an ancient setting . Rome is traditionally imagined as the home of emperors and senators , generals and gladiators , a dignified theatre of pomp and ceremony . But what about the little guys , the wasters – new to the big city , stuck in office jobs , unable to get the girls ? Plebs 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 . The show focuses on Marcus , his slave with an attitude problem , Grumio , and their flatmate : Stylax , and later Jason . There ’ s also Marcus ’ s ruthless boss , Flavia – an expert manipulator with a private life that ’ s the stuff of legend . Unlikely to be immortalised in the annals or memorialised in a frieze , Marcus , Jason , Stylax and Grumio are essentially just a bunch of Plebs . And whether they ’ re wearing togas , or skinny jeans , desperate young men in any period of history are essentially cut from the same cloth ...
