The Games takes a satirical look at the bureaucrats as they orchestrate the extravaganza that will be the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. The series is set within the fictional Sydney Olympic Organizing Committee. From press conferences and protocol breaches to bungled boardroom meetings, The Games is a behind-the-scenes view of the Committee as the main event draws closer. Capturing the unfolding drama and decision making associated with the Games, this is an irreverent look at the planning behind the Olympics. (26x25min)
