Multi award-winning PLEBS is ITV2's ancient Roman sitcom. The first series was the channel's highest rating comedy ever and the second series airs in September 2014. 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 stars Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson, as the three young men; Marcus, Stylax and their lazy slave with an attitude problem, Grumio.
