Set inside the offices of the "Nation Building Authority", a newly created government organization responsible for overseeing major infrastructure projects, Utopia explores that moment when bureaucracy and grand dreams collide. It's a tribute to those political leaders who have somehow managed to take a long-term vision and use it for short-term gain. The eight-part series follows the working lives of a tight-knit team in charge of guiding big building schemes from announcement to unveiling. Constant shifts in priorities are the order of the day as the staff are asked to come up with plans for everything from new roads and rail lines to airports and high rise urban developments. In short, Utopia examines the forces that go into creating a very well-designed white elephant.

It's got a terrible showname, it will be going up against the US survival show utopia 2014, but it is a pretty good political and government offices comedy, much like the games, set around the Sydney Olympics, and London's 2012. Starting with satire, it can only get better with time. For the Brits, it's familiar. For the US audience, some of the jokes will not be easy to follow, but you're going to pick them up really quickly.
