Popular TV Genres

Television is the dominant mass-entertainment medium of the modern age. Yet, while popular genres in film have received much attention, their television equivalents have remained relatively unknown and unexplored. Popular Television Genres explores the lineages and taxonomies of fictional television worldwide. Written by experts in the field, each book in the series focuses on a particular genre or cycle of popular television. The approach is methodologically broad, balancing the textual analysis of narrative with the need to place popular television in its cultural and historical contexts, as well as analysing its critical and popular reception. Intended for use on television and media studies courses, Popular Television Genres provides informed and accessible reading for scholars, students and general readers alike.
