Comedy of manners meets comedy of errors in this madcap 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.

With his reputation staked on an impossible intercom repair and a frenetic training schedule devised specially by his conniving boss Mr. Schwartz, it's going to be all Jimmy can do to keep his head above water on his first day at Hubris Towers.
Add a growing list of errands, a band of Russians, a Frenchman, a duckling, and some very poor directions, and Jimmy will need every ounce of luck and ingenuity he can muster—and maybe a little help from his new friends—if he's going to have any chance of staying at Hubris Towers.
And then there’s the little matter of his hat...

When Hubris Towers acquires the last house on the block, Mr. Hubris is excited to welcome local matriarch Mother Robert as the newest tenant of Hubris Towers and announce the launch of an ambitious new construction project.
But with the big inspection one day away and the building falling apart at the seams, it's going to be all Jimmy and Ana can do to keep Hubris Towers from getting shut down. Add a literary interlude with Ms. Leonelle, a little help from Gustav the criminal bellhop-in-training, and rather less help from Mr. Schwartz, and it's anyone's guess whether Hubris Towers will even stay open long enough to demolish Mother Robert's house.
The Russians are eager to help, though, and even if Jimmy is poor in money, he's rich in leftover tuna. So it will probably turn out fine.
This is the sixth installment of Hubris Towers, a comedy series for fans of P. G. Wodehouse and Fawlty Towers. If you’re new to the series, sign up at byfaroe.com/hubris to try the first two episodes on us.
