The Life and Afterlife of the Narrative Action Hero

Combining an exciting methodology alongside high-interest case
studies, Television in Transition offers students
of television a guide to a medium that has weathered the challenges
of first-run syndication, a multi-channel universe, netlets, major
media conglomerates, deregulation, and globalization--all in the
space of twenty years.

  • Examines a return in television programming to action
    narratives with individual (super) heroes intended to navigate this
    new, international, multi-channel universe

  • Explores how television programming "translates" to new spatial
    geographies: different nations, cultures, broadcast systems; and
    different formats, distribution outlets, and screen sizes

  • Looks at the value of a program's "afterlife," the continued
    circulation, repackaging and repurposing of programming beyond its
    initial iteration

  • Blends institutional and textual analyses in case
    studies of Highlander: The Series, Smallville, 24,
    and Doctor Who
