All roads lead to Rome for the return of the multi-award winning comedy PLEBS in a brand new eight part series. A modern comedy in an ancient setting, PLEBS charts the antics of three under achievers, all of whom are on a desperate quest to live the when in Rome mantra to the full in the empire s most exciting city. Since series one the world has indeed progressed (from 27BC to 26BC) but flat-mates Marcus (Tom Rosenthal), Stylax (Joel Fry) and slave Grumio (Ryan Sampson) have made no strides whatsoever. Not domestically, not financially and certainly not romantically. Marcus ongoing crush Cynthia (Sophie Coliquhoun) is still next door, and still ignoring his advances, with her own slave Metella (Lydia Rose Bewley) on hand with a sarcastic quip to keep Marcus at bay. Stylax wants Marcus to give up on her and move on so that they can realize their dreams of being the big men of Rome. For Stylax this also means becoming a champion charioteer. Who cares if he doesn't own a chariot and can't drive? Their fearsome boss Flavia (Doon Mackichan) is still running the office and, for the first time we meet her husband, Cornelius (Neil Stuke). Meanwhile, water-pouring colleague, Aurelius (Tom Basden) is getting married and looking for a best man. Business is booming for dodgy Landlord (Karl Theobald) who is now accompanied by massive henchman, Davus (Tom Davis). Guests include Simon Callow, Sean Williamson, Lauren Socha, Tim Key, James Fleet and Paul Ritter.
