Utopia

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 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.

No! I don not except the decisions of those execs who have put UTOPIA on notice. This show needs to be seen worldwide and holds a real importance to everyone in need of a good ribbing/laugh at government lunacy. Please hear my petition, please!

Inside the offices of the "Nation Building Authority", a newly created government organization responsible for doing absolutely nothing for infrastructure researches nothing, builds nothing and the workers are thrown into a surplus of governmental misappropriation of knowledge, money and management skills. Not a thing ever gets done and that is how government works. It is the insanity/chaos that has me rolling on the floor with something so wonderfully honest. Best of Comedy!

Just love the insanity of government infrastructure, mostly demo countries. Nothing better than the true absurdity of it all. So spot on. :) Good Show, pardon, great show!
