It’s Comedy Gold For London Olympics Parody Series

The BBC is to parody the preparations for the London 2012 Olympic Games in a new comedy series.

“Twenty Twelve” has been filmed in the style of a mockumentary, such as “The Office,” and BBC say it hopes it will “bring some humour” to the serious logistical challenges that are facing the organisers.

The BBC says the six-part comedy series will deal with “such hot topics as how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east.”

The writers have also tried to make light of the process of selling a taekwondo hall after the Olympics Games, the search for someone to run the Cultural Olympiad, and how wind turbines will operate in the absence of any wind.

The series will air on BBC 4. Specific broadcast dates however have yet to be announced.

Australia’s ABC aired a similar comedy ahead of their Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 that took a satirical look at Olympic bureaucrats.
