Copyvio / close paraphrase?[edit]

The article presently begins (links are formatting removed):

The Hollowmen is an Australian television comedy series set in the offices of the Central Policy Unit, a fictional political advisory unit personally set up by the Prime Minister to help him get re-elected. Their brief is long term vision; to stop worrying about tomorrow's headlines, and focus on next week's.

The description from the ABC shop reads:

The Hollowmen is a comedy-drama set in the offices of the Central Policy Unit, a special think tank personally set up by the Prime Minister to help him in the most important task - getting re-elected.
Their brief is to develop "long term vision"; to stop worrying about tomorrow's headlines, and start focusing on next week's.

I have bolded the common parts in each case. The sequence of ideas is identical. Is this enough to be a WP:COPYVIO issue, and / or WP:PARAPHRASE?

I am also concerned about the episode descriptions, though a quick search has not identified an obvious source. EdChem (talk) 06:22, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

I find that some of the episode descriptions can be found verbatim on youtube, mytvshows.org, and thetvdb.com, but I don't know if they came from WP or the other way around. I changed two descriptions as inaccurate (I just watched the episodes, and noticed the errors when I first came to the page, before the possibility of a CP /COPYVIO issue occurred to me) so any site reflecting those changes is copied from WP text.
