"Twenty Twelve" (TV show) is a comedy series on BBC America that warms up for the London Olympics by bringing together the actors and creators of some of Britain's most iconic comedies.

Starring Hugh Bonneville ("Downton Abbey"), Jessica Hynes ("Spaced"), Olivia Colman ("Peep Show"), Amelia Bullmore ("I'm Alan Partridge"), Vincent Franklin ("The Thick of It") and Karl Theobald ("Green Wing") and narrated by David Tennant ("The Spies of Warsaw," "Doctor Who"), the documentary style comedy follows the team responsible for delivering the biggest show on earth: the London Olympics.

The British comedy series is about the people paddling hard beneath the water to make the Olympics happen in London in 2012. They have 9 billion pounds to spend and plenty of time before the deadline; what can possibly go wrong? What to do when the much-vaunted wind turbines won't turn because there's no wind and how to cope with athletes who want to help but are just too dull. It's all in a day's work for the men and women whose job it is to stage the greatest sporting event in the world.

From executive producer Jon Plowman ("The Office," "Extras," "Absolutely Fabulous") and writer John Morton ("People Like Us"), "Twenty Twelve" is a BBC production, distributed by BBC Worldwide and has been acquired by BBC America.
