Two misfits struggle to survive in the lurid world of FILTH, a weekly lads' mag. Rob (James Buckley) has a knack for lads' mag writing, but the job threatens his chances of ever having a relationship. Mike (Danny Morgan) couldn't be less suited to the job: he's naive, sensitive and a virgin, but eager to learn.

They are minnows in a testosterone pond, ruled over by Chad (Danny Dyer), an ex-military uber-lad, and Michelle (Tracy-Ann Oberman), their ball-busting editor, who embodies the magazine better than any man in the place.

In this pilot episode the main storyline revolves around a bet between Michelle and Chad. Michelle says she can take Mike's virginty, but Chad thinks he can get Mike to sleep with one of the magazine models. The two battle to win the bet.
