Twenty Twelve: The Complete Collection

Add to Wishlist
  • Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Jessica Hynes (Spaced), Olivia Colman (Peep Show) and Amelia Bullmore (State of Play) star in this fly on the wall comedy about the people paddling hard beneath the water to make the Olympics happen in London in 212. Filmed in the same faux-documentary style used in The Office, Twenty Twelve finds hilarity in how a huge bureaucracy deals with petty details such as how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east, what to do with the Taekwondo hall after the event, and how to cope with athletes who want to do publicity but are just too dull. This intrepid team must decide who should run the Cultural Olympiad and figure out what to do when the much-vaunted wind turbines won't turn because there's no wind. Basic ineptitude rises to the surface when these men and women attempt to stage the greatest sporting event in the world.
