The Olympic Joke

The Associated Press reports that the BBC is to parody preparations for the London 2012 Olympics in a new comedy series.

"Twenty Twelve" has been shot in the style of mockumentary series "The Office".

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

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

The series will air on BBC 4. Broadcast dates haven't been announced

The real life preparations have been comical enough (not least the farce over the "budget"), the BBC don't need writers it is writing itself.
