It's election time in this special episode from the topical weekly satire series about a PR firm (written by James Griffin, Dave Armstrong, Tom Scott and Roger Hall). Giles Peterson and Associates will take on any client - even if it means trying to update Helen Clark's wardrobe, speechwriting for Winston Peters, offering succour to fading National and Alliance MPs, brokering a coalition deal between the Greens and Labour, or helping candidates master the intricacies of The Worm. Meanwhile, elements of the Catholic Church feel they haven't apologised enough.

The objective is topical satire. It's not really a sitcom because it doesn't have a laugh track or anything. The desire was to try to make these people real but by the same token have them saying things that are funny. It's internal laughter, it's not great haw-haw-ha-ha American sitcom. I hope people will just have a bit of a giggle.
– Producer Tony Holden (10 Nov 2001)
