America In Primetime
This series is a collaboration with the community that creates primetime TV and an unusual opportunity to experience the creative process from the inside out. At the heart of the series are more than 100 in-depth interviews with a virtual "who's who" of the best creators, writers, and actors in primetime. Structured around today's most compelling shows, weaving between past and present, each episode focuses on one character archetype that has remained a staple of primetime through the generations - the independent woman, the man of the house, the misfit, and the crusader.
