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 just happens to be Ancient Rome.

The eagerly awaited series is ITV2’s biggest sitcom launch in its near 14-year history.

The series stars Friday Night Dinner’s Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry (Trollied, 2012) and Ryan Sampson (Doctor Who) as three young men – Marcus, Stylax and their lazy slave with an attitude problem, Grumio – who think a slap up meal starts with a trip to the compost heap.

Doon Mackichan (Smack The Pony) stars as the boys’ ruthless boss Flavia – an expert manipulator with a private life that’s the stuff of legend. The series also features a cameo role from the ultimate geezer, Danny Dyer, who shows he’s as comfortable in a Roman sandal as he is in his trainers.

From orgy etiquette to being bashful down the bathhouse, this is Ancient Rome like you’ve never seen it 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.

Providing the glamour factor are Lydia Rose Bewley and Sophie Colquhoun who are new in town from Britain andpretty fit. No wonder the unlikely lads dub them the “Fitons” as they pursue them.

The full series of six 30 minute episodes plus bonus features is out to own on Blu-ray and DVD from April 29th. All episodes will also be released on ITunes straight after they’ve aired on TV.
