Join Jeeves & Wooster for an enchanting romp through the drawing rooms and diversions of Britain’s tweedy elite.
Bertie Wooster is the classic young British man of means, blessed with a touch too generous a heart and a slight deficit in the noggin department. Jeeves is his hilariously arch and resourceful valet, a “Gentleman’s Gentleman” without equal who sees Bertie through the never-ending swirl of hopeless old friends, indomitable aunts, unbidden guests, and romantic entanglements that dominate his life.
JEEVES AND WOOSTER: THE COMPLETE SERIES includes all 23 episodes of the acclaimed series based on P. G. Wodehouse’s beloved stories. Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are spot-on as the unflappable butler and his overwrought employer, and their inimitable misadventures are masterfully adapted for the screen by Clive Exton (Poirot).
