Contemporary Television

Contemporary television has drastically changed how we tell stories. Over the past two decades, the shift in long-form televisual narrative has resulted in an abundance of high-quality TV dramas that challenge cinematic storytelling. This paper reflects on these changes and asks students to evaluate the success of high-end producers such as HBO, Netflix, Amazon and Showtime that have pushed TV beyond its previous boundaries.
