AMERICA In Primetime

AMERICA In Primetime

Since its inception, television has served as a lens on American society, and in the expansive world of modern TV, today’s heroes and villains have come a long way from their predecessors. AMERICA In Primetime showcases this iconic American art form, which has both reflected and shaped our national character.

AMERICA In Primetime presents some of the most compelling shows on television today, as well as those of the past, by focusing on key character archetypes — the man of the house, the independent woman, the misfit and the crusader — that have remained a staple of primetime through the generations, capturing both the continuity of the character and the evolution (Source: PBS)
