Making Television: Authorship and the Production Process


This collection of essays on television authorship includes work of some of the most prominent scholars in television studies. Rather than assigning one author to individual television texts, the contributors probe the relationship between the various authors at work within the institutional, cultural, and economic settings that characterize the television industry. The book analyzes and defines the unique methods of television authorship and suggests numerous candidates for authorial accountability allowing the media to enter the realm of contemporary criticism.
