Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Created by David Nobbs' and based on his novel, the BBC comedy series The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin stars Leonard Rossiter in the title role. Outwardly a successful executive, Reginald Perrin suffers from boredom on the job and a humdrum home life. He yearns to break free from his existence, a yearning that turns into reality after he suffers a nervous breakdown. Unfortunately, his "new" life proves to be just as wearisome as his old one.
