The Complete First Season
Comedy of manners meets comedy of errors in a new series for fans of Fawlty Towers and P. G. Wodehouse.
When Jimmy Acorn applies to become the new concierge at Hubris Towers, there are a few things he doesn’t know. He doesn’t know how he’s going to make rent. He doesn’t know why wealthy tenants would move into a half-constructed building. And he doesn’t know, strictly speaking, just what a concierge does.
What he does know is that eviction is looming and a PhD in literature isn’t nearly as marketable as he’d hoped, so any job will do. But a life of conciergery at Hubris Towers isn’t just any job. On paper, it’s the future of luxury living. In practice, there are still a few kinks to work out.
Set aside the manager’s grim courtesies and the incomprehensible intercom, get past the infuriatingly helpful bellhop, and Jimmy still finds himself juggling eccentric tenants, a looming inspection, and shadowy underworld connections. And in the midst of it all, he needs to look sharp and stay un-awkward, just in case the lovely Ms. Leonelle breezes by.
Nevertheless, with a little luck, a lot of hard work, and the help of an unexpected band of friends, Jimmy will find a way through, even if he does get a little damp or…well, sombreroed in the process.
This volume contains all eight episodes of Hubris Towers Season 1, previously released individually. Plus, the winter holidays come to Hubris Towers in an all-new bonus short.
