They’ve got a lot of catching up to do ...
Ella and Roly have bright futures ahead of them when they strike up an unlikely friendship as teenagers.
By their early twenties, they’re living their dreams.
Ella’s going to university, falling in love, and embarking on a promising academic career. Roly’s touring the world as a member of teenybopper idols Oh Boy!, playing sell-out concerts to crowds of adoring fans and picking up the girls who throw themselves at his feet.
But when they reconnect ten years later, everything’s changed. A chronic illness has forced Ella to abandon her studies, move in with her mother and put her dreams on hold. Roly’s been kicked out of the band, ripped off by his accountant and dumped by his underwear-model girlfriend.
Now they’re both ready to start over. But will they ever get back to where they once belonged? Or could the journey lead them somewhere even better?
The Reboot is a heartwarming and hilarious romcom about old friends, new beginnings and second chances.

Sun, fun and intrigue on the French Riviera ... this summer is set to sizzle!
Keen amateur sleuth Lesley believes in first impressions and instant attraction. No slow burns. No second chances. So when handsome architect Al asks her out after a singles night, she turns him down immediately. There’s just no spark.
But when he offers her a job posing as his girlfriend to sniff out the truth about his elderly uncle’s fiancée, she can’t resist the opportunity to play private detective – especially as it involves joining Al’s glamorous family on a ritzy holiday in Nice.
As she embarks on her mission, Lesley is confident she already knows how everything will play out. After all, it’s no great mystery why a young woman would marry a seventy-two-year-old millionaire with a heart condition.
And though Al may be the nicest boyfriend she’s ever had (even if he is fake), she made her mind up about him the first time they met and there’s no chance he’s going to grow on her ... is there?
But people have a way of surprising you, as she’s about to discover ...

She's a party girl. He's a party leader. Things are about to get complicated ...
Jenny Hannigan might be a good-time party girl, but all she secretly craves is a family of her own and a life of domestic bliss.
So when she falls in love with handsome politician Richard Allam, she thinks she's found exactly what she's looking for. Leader of his party and poised to become the next Prime Minister, Richard seems to embody the security and stability she's never had.
However, Jenny's troubled background and flirty, fun-loving nature don't exactly make her an ideal candidate for the role of Prime Minister's wife - unlike Richard's ex, the impeccably pedigreed Julia. So Richard's spin doctor, Dev Tennant, is given the job of managing her public image in the run-up to the election.
Jenny tries to fit into Richard's world, navigating her way through his stuffy colleagues, disapproving friends and a scandal-hungry media in pursuit of her happy-ever-after. But as the election campaign gathers momentum, Dev discovers that Jenny has more than a few skeletons in her closet, and he's working overtime to keep them there.
And as her life spins out of control, Jenny starts to wonder if she's been looking for her happy ending in all the wrong places ...
