Writing AS TV drama and Audience and Institution introductions

I suggest that you try and cover the following in your introduction for TV drama:

– Is there a sub genre?

– What channel did the programme appear on and how might this affect the representation?

– Who is the primary target audience and why might it affect the representation?

The Wire is a hard hitting and gritty TV drama which is yet another example of HBO’s commitment to producing high quality, complex and character led programmes. Demographically, the programme is likely to primarily appeal to young to middle aged men who enjoy multi layered narrative threads, crime and social realism. 

I suggest that you try and cover the following in your introduction for audiences and institutions:

– Define any key words

– Link this your case study, DIsney (Pixar and Marvel)

– Locate any point/s for discussion

The production and distribution of Disney films have changed significantly in the last few decades. New technologies have had a huge impact upon all aspects of the film industry and consequently, Disney has had to evolve dramatically in order to remain relevant to ever more demanding audiences. In particular, Disney’s relationship with Pixar and Marvel has really galvanised the institution and helped cement its place as one the world’s media powerhouses.
