Spin Doctors - Election Special

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2002

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)
Make it so.
– Mantra of Giles Peterson (John Summer)
The election is a popularity contest between the sad, the needy and the pitiful. The air around these people is crackling with desperation. They will pay anything for a vote.
– Andrew (Mark Ferguson) on the interface between public relations and politics
