I caught up with two of the stars of Plebs, ITV2’s first sitcom in ages. Joel Fry plays Stylax and Ryan Sampson who plays Grumio.
Plebs is the first sitcom for ITV2 in a very long time, last one being FM starring Chris O'Dowd back in 2009 and do you know what? It's bloody funny. Starring Tom Rosenthal, Joel Fry and Ryan Sampson. The first episode is called 'The Orgy' and the second features Danny Dyer as a Gladiator. Genius.
So what exactly is Plebs about? Well, it 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 - that city being Ancient Rome in 27BC.
