Twenty Twelve

Hosting the 2012 Olympics is a big deal for London, as evidenced by this comedy series, originally broadcast by the BBC, which follows the Olympic Deliverance team -- the people tasked with having the two-week event go off without a problem. The team has plenty of time before the deadline and 9 billion pounds to spend, so what could possibly go wrong? The team members do their best to get to the end of the day, the end of the week and, hopefully, the end of the Olympics without everything coming undone. Can they do it?
