Multi award-winning TV series UTOPIA now a book!

Utopia

The multi award-winning, critically acclaimed and much-loved ABC TV series Utopia is now a book! Featuring the scripts of all sixteen episodes across seasons one and two, as well as more than 200 photographs, this is political satire at its most hilarious. Set inside the offices of the “Nation Building Authority”, a newly created government organisation 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 is 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.

Praise for UTOPIA

‘Whip smart dialogue that rarely misses a beat’ Doug Anderson, The Age Green Guide
‘It is sharp, it is merciless, and it is very, very funny...Utopia articulates beautifully.’ Ben Pobjie, Sydney Morning Herald
