Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville comes to BBC America in an all new, highly-acclaimed comedy series about the team responsible for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Don't miss the premiere of TWENTY TWELVE *** Thursday June 28 at 9/8c *** Presented by BBC America's Ministry of Laughs. Then, be sure to catch new episodes of TWENTY TWELVE in its regular time, Saturdays at Midnight ET.

This summer, all eyes will be on London - but for the team tasked with making everything happen... well, they aren't quite gold medalists!

Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who) heads an all-star line-up from some of Britain's most iconic comedies, including Jessica Hynes (Spaced), Olivia Colman (Peep Show), Amelia Bullmore (I'm Alan Partridge), Vincent Franklin (The Thick of It) and Karl Theobold (Green Wing).

PLUS: Don't miss David Tennant (Doctor Who's 10th Doctor, The Spies of Warsaw) as the Narrator.

TWENTY TWELVE explores hot topics like how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east, which celebrities should be approached to carry the Torch and what to do when protesters leave large quantities of horse dung on your doorstep in protest at the equestrian events.

From how to cope with athletes who want to help but are just too dull, to getting a busload of non-English speaking Brazilians from A to B, this crack team of experts is paddling hard beneath the water to make the Olympics happen in London in 2012. With £9 billion to spend and plenty of time before the deadline, what can possibly go wrong?!

Presented by the Ministry of Laughs, BBC AMERICA's Saturday night comedy block. Home to award-winning, irreverent and inventive comedies including The Graham Norton Show, The Thick of It, Katy Brand's Big Ass Show, The Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner.
