Salve, citizens! MCM London becomes MCM Londinium on the Friday afternoon of the show, as the stars and writers of Roman comedy Plebs take to MCM Comic Con’s Main Stage to give us the inside scoop on ITV2’s award-winning series, currently in its fourth season.
Join cast members Tom Rosenthal (Marcus), Ryan Sampson (Grumio) and Jonathan Pointing (Jason) along with writer/director Sam Leifer and writer Tom Basden, who also plays waterboy/man Aurelius, for the Plebs panel at 16:00 on Friday 25 May.
One of ITV2’s most popular scripted comedies, Plebs has been described as The In Betweenersmeets Rome, garnering BAFTA nominations, ‘Best New Comedy’ at the British Comedy Awards and ‘Best Scripted Comedy’ at the Royal Television Society Awards.
The show’s fourth season turns the lives of Marcus and his slave Grumio upside down, as the sudden departure of Stylax (Joel Fry) is met by the equally sudden arrival of ditzy blonde builder and new-Pleb-on-the-block Jason. Having acquired an abandoned toilet from crooked property developer Crassus (Robert Lindsay), the lads decide to convert into Rome’s hottest new wine-bar, The Crown and Toga. What could possibly go wrong?
Plebs Series 4 is currently airing on ITV2, while Series 1-3 are available to watch on Netflix.
