´´The West Wing is one of the most acclaimed network television series of the last decades, and until now one of the least analyzed. Janet McCabe´s fine work has addressed that omission with a concise and highly readable account that will be useful to anyone interested in American culture and media.´´ (Michele Hilmes, author of Network Nations: A Transnational History of British and American Broadcasting)´´This well-researched, clearly written, and informative view of The West Wing will be appreciated by both media scholars and TV aficionados alike. McCabe´s book follows in the televisual ´Tradition of Quality´ exemplified by the primetime program itself. Combining behind-the-scenes insights with an integrative cultural studies approach, the volume focuses on the television industry, as well as on the show´s political and thematic relevance, televisual auteurism, and the aesthetic dimensions of narrative, characters, and TV stylistics. This volume could serve as a work of scholarship, a course textbook, or just a great read for fans of the best drama on network television.´´ (Frank P. Tomasulo, guest professor of television studies in the Department of Film at Sarah Lawrence College) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary D. MacFadden.

I am introducing my new movie or TV characters crossing over existing television characters on TV or movies. I am writing a plot summary or a synopsis about potential crossovers that could lead us off to a spin off or a movie franchise from my movie characters that I created to interact with my favorite shows, to the potential characters that I created a few years. I have been rejected by Hollywood for a long time because they don´t take unsolicited material from writers. Unsolicited means no new guys; it´s kind of tough to find an agent or a producer to cut you some slack since they don´t take unsolicited material. I wrote my first book on twenty movie and TV show ideas and spin offs that you can´t pitch to a television network or a movie studio. Because they don´t take unsolicited material and neither does an agency. I watch a lot of TV, I read fan fiction on the internet where TV shows crossover to other shows or movies. They all stink, but at least they can hear them out or see what happens. As for me, I found another way to get people to read about what happens if an existing TV series references any of the characters that I created. So, I´m showing the world what would happen if any of my characters in movies that I create would meet an existing TV character on a crossover. I would love to see people to get their opinion when they listen to this audiobook and ask if they want my movie characters that I create to come to life or want to see if it happens. If they don´t, I understand. But I want to get people´s opinion if they want to see my movie characters come to life. Instead of TV or movie executives and agents who reject me and tell me we don´t take unsolicited material. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hillary Hawkins.

Get ready for a fun, interactive quiz based on the popular American TV horror drama that everyone is talking about!

Seinfeld, Friends, Frasier, ER, Cheers, Law & Order, Will & Grace… Here is the funny, splashy, irresistible insiders’ account of the greatest era in television history - told by the actors, writers, directors, producers, and the network executives who made it happen… and watched it all fall apart. Warren Littlefield was the NBC President of Entertainment who oversaw the Peacock Network’s rise from also-ran to a division that generated a billion dollars in profits. In this fast-paced and exceptionally entertaining oral history, Littlefield and NBC luminaries including Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Kelsey Grammer, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Julianna Marguiles, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wylie, Debra Messing, Jack Welch, Jimmy Burrows, Helen Hunt, and Dick Wolf vividly recapture the incredible era of Must See TV. From 1993 through 1998, NBC exploded every conventional notion of what a broadcast network could accomplish with the greatest prime-time line-up in television history. On Thursday nights, a cavalcade of groundbreaking comedies and dramas streamed into homes, attracting a staggering 75 million viewers and generating more revenue than all other six nights of programming combined. The road to success, however, was a rocky one. How do you turn a show like Seinfeld, one of the lowest testing pilots of all time, into a hit when the network overlords are constantly warring, or worse, drowning in a bottle of vodka? Top of the Rock is an addictively readable account of the risky business decisions, creative passion, and leaps of faith that made Must See TV possible. Chock full of delicious behind-the-scenes anecdotes that run the gamut from hilarious casting and programming ploys to petty jealousies and drug interventions, you’re in for a juicy, unputdownable read. 1.

The American TV program lasted for four seasons and is now available for streaming on Netflix for a monthly subscription fee. The Killing stars many talented actors including Mireille Enos (World War Z). In the first season of the smash hit AMC TV program, Seattle Police Detectives Lyndon and Holder try to come to terms with the tragedy that strikes the Larsen family who did not know their daughter, Rosie, quite as well as they thought they did. Lyndon is preoccupied with other personal and family matters during the Rosie Larsen case, but she manages to penetrate the fog of the western sea board, and give this ´´missing persons´´ case the attention that it and the Larsen family deserve. Holder is not exactly an ideal role model for young people as he and Lyndon wrestle with their own personal demons, as the political campaign of a popular councilman becomes embroiled in the case as well. What possibly could an upstanding member of city council, who is now running for Mayor, have to do with the disappearance of a charming young girl with a promising future in front of her? Season One delves into this question with numerous other suspects coming to haunt the clarity of the case. Even though it officially began as a Nordic crime series, The Killing has now become engrained within the American psyche of millions of American TV viewers!
