When in Rome, de de de…do as the Romans do! There’s no place like Rome in the hilarious comedy Plebs, which returns for its fifth series on ITV2 before marching on to DVD alongside Plebs Series 1 – 5 DVD Box Set on 2 December 2019, and we have box sets to give away courtesy of Acorn Media.
Plebs follows the lives of three hapless young men from the suburbs as they try to get laid, hold down jobs and climb the social ladder in the big city...of Rome in 23BC.
Developing schemes and side-hustles aplenty while running up-and-coming nightlife hotspot the Crown & Toga, the gang are joined on their adventures by Emilia Fox, Tony Robinson and Amanda Holden, who features as lusty aristocrat Rufina who takes a liking to Jason (Jonathan Pointing). With Marcus (Tom Rosenthal) wooing Gloria (Ellie Taylor) who runs the laundrette next door, Jason and Aurelius (Tom Basden) trying their luck at a male escort agency, and Grumio (Ryan Sampson) inventing the first hands-free parasol: The Grumbrella, you know you’re in for a right Roman riot.
