The Screen Guide

Set in the offices of the ‘Nation Building Authority’, UTOPIA explores that moment when bureaucracy and grand dreams collide. The series follows the working lives of a tightknit team in charge of guiding major infrastructure projects 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. UTOPIA examines the forces that go into creating a very well-designed white elephant.
