Media Experiences : Reality TV Producers and Audiences (Hardcover) (Annette Hill)
About this item
A major change to the business of media over the past decade is the global production and distribution of reality entertainment formats for television, internet, live events, print and mobile media. This book draws on production and audience practices for international formats such as:
- X Factor
- Got Talent
- Strictly Come Dancing
- Dancing with the Stars
- Big Brother
Chapters include new empirical research conducted in collaboration with FremantleMedia, using representative samples of audiences in Britain and America, with reference to other countries around the world.
The book has a critical focus on an experience of rights on both sides of the camera and aims to widen the horizon of production and audience studies to look beyond text to consider media experiences, specifically an experience of rights. It is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying reality tv, popular culture and television and new media.
