SUMMARY

Dealing primarily with the post-1996 era shaped by digital technologies and defined by consumer choice and brand marketing, this book brings together leading scholars, established journalists and experienced broadcasters working in the field of contemporary television to debate what we currently mean by quality TV. They go deep into contemporary American television fictions, fromThe SopranosandThe West Wing, toCSIandLost. But how do we understand the emergence of these kinds of fiction? Are they genuinely new? What does quality tv have to tell us about the state of today's television market? And is it quality? Original, often polemic, each chapter proposes new ways of thinking about and defining quality TV. There is a foreword from Robert Thompson, and heated dialogue between British and US television critics. Also included are interviews with W. Snuffy Walden (scoredThe West Wingamong others) and with David Chase (The Sopranoscreator).Akass, Kim is the author of 'Quality TV Contemporary American Television and Beyond', published 2007 under ISBN 9781845115111 and ISBN 1845115112.
