Overview

Scripted entertainment television has brought extraordinary drama and comedy, tragedy and triumph into homes all across the globe. It chronicles who we are, how we see ourselves and how we experience the world – in the professionally entertaining American way.



It has appeal for all who grow up on American entertainment in our increasingly interconnected world. It has allowed us to grapple with politics, culture, religion and race – and to laugh while doing so. Exported far beyond national borders, it has created a shared language that cuts across physical and cultural boundaries, helping to make possible the interconnected planet in which we now live, one we never could have imagined decades ago when television was born.

America In Primetime explores primetime entertainment TV through the characters who have defined it in the past, and who populate it today. The evolution of character types from show to show, genre to genre, offers a compelling and organic way to explore the history of our societies, and explains how we’ve arrived where we are today. We share the struggles of the characters, their successes and dilemmas and accomplishments. They reflect us, and we them.
